We booked one of the Stonehenge trupa which turned up to be an excellent choice. Pete our tour guide was so funny and with good humor. We loved it :))

Service considerably less frequent than other tour operators. Commentary not correct for the places on the London hop on hop off tour. Will never use them again.

Buses drop off but to get picked up again had a wait if 25-40 minutes. It was a waste of time and money!!!! Go with another tour company!!! There are a few others that had buses stopping more often.More

We rented a car and drove ourselves. You can buy tickets on the Harry Potter website and find your own way there and back. Not sure about the train though as it’s 45 mins or so from downtown London
