Our travels take us through a remarkable span of five thousand years, where we will discover some of the secrets of enigmatic stone circles, the geometry of cathedrals, holy wells’ potent waters, and the powerful earth energy currents that connect them all. Your expert guides will distill the essence of our ancestors’ beliefs, spirituality, myths, legends and history and share some of the wisdom of the ages with you.
Staying at historic hotels in the market town of Devizes, centrally placed for daily visits to the enigmatic sacred sites of Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and Somerset. Throughout your journey you will feel welcomed and at home in this bustling medieval market town, chock-full with English charisma.
Our hotel overlooks the spacious cathedral green with the magnificent western facade of the medieval cathedral facing us. Next door is the Bishop’s Palace surrounded by castellated walls, a drawbridge and a moat filled from the upwelling springs from which Wells gets its name, our first introduction to the mysteries of water.
We will visit Glastonbury, formerly called the Isle of Avalon, rich in history and legend. The Abbey claims the burial place of King Arthur & Guinevere and Chalice Well – the possible resting place of the Holy Grail.
Overlooking it all, the Tor acts as a beacon to spiritual pilgrims as it has done beyond memory. What significance do these have for us in our lives today?
Old Sarum and Salisbury have a fascinating story to tell, where history comes to life in a living medieval city. Connected by a leyline they share the same energy currents as neighboring Stonehenge. This world-famous stone circle has many secrets to share during our private out-of-hours special access.
Avebury landscape temple including the stone circles, the avenues, Silbury Hill and West Kennet Long Barrow, A short drive away through idyllic English country villages with picturesque thatched cottages we arrive at the Uffington White Horse, a 3,000 year old image carved in a hillside that may actually be a dragon!
Finally there is an option to visit the modern mystery of crop circles that occur in the countryside around Avebury, the huge geometric patterns that mysteriously form overnight in fields of grain each summer.
If you want more time exploring the crop circle enigma then why not join us for the Crop Circles & Summer Lectures Intensive – we designed it to be the perfect add-on to this tour, starting the day the Mysteries of England tour finishes!
The pace of the tour will allow you time to also wander the lanes and shops of some of England’s most historic towns and cities (it’s only a city if it has a cathedral!) and to enjoy an English cream tea or meal in a traditional pub.
Day 1, Wed 20th July
Your tour guides, Glenn & Cameron Broughton will meet the group at Heathrow Airport after your overnight flight. We will travel in private minibuses to our hotel in Devizes, your home for the duration of your journey. The picturesque Kennet and Avon Canal flows through this charming medieval market town offering a relaxing walk along its towpath and the opportunity to watch narrow boats navigate the longest flight of locks in Britain. . Introductions & welcome drink along with dinner at the hotel!
Day 2, Thurs 21st July
We start the day with an orientation meeting to set the scene for our adventure together. You will have time to stroll through the market that has taken place outside our hotel for almost nine centuries and get lunch at one of the award-winning Farmers Market stalls or in one of the many cafes lining the medieval market square.
After lunch we’ll gather to begin our journey through the Avebury Landscape Temple, the heart centre of megalithic Britain. Here, within the largest stone circle in the world, we find the remains of two stone circles, one solar and one lunar. All the sacred sites in this area centre on Avebury including Stonehenge some twenty miles distant. Close by is the largest man made mound in Europe, the remarkable five thousand year old Silbury Hill. Avebury is at the midpoint along the famous St Michael leyline that runs 350 miles from coast to coast across southern England connecting some remarkable places of power. We will offer dowsing tuition for those who want to try their hand at it, we can all dowse, we just forgot how! Free-choice dinner not included.
Day 3, Friday 22nd July
Today we are joined for the day by experts Gary Biltcliffe & Caroline Hoare, authors of ‘The Spine of Albion’. They have spent fifteen years tracking and researching the Belinus leyline and its associated energy currents.
We will visit Uffington White Horse & Dragon Hill, ancient energetic sacred sites located on the Belinus leyline, with a very interesting story to tell. Close by is Wayland’s Smithy an atmospheric long barrow set within a copse of trees where we can have a picnic lunch if the weather is good or we can take lunch in a nearby village pub.
We will also visit the Cathedral in the Vale, St Mary’s church in Uffington village built in 1250AD where the Mary and Elen energies converge. Dinner at the hotel
Day 4, Saturday 23rd July
Leave hotel for an early morning visit to Stonehenge before it opens to the general public for the day. We have arranged for our group to have private special access inside the stones of the world’s most famous sacred site. Standing inside the huge megaliths which have stood in magnificent isolation on the windswept Salisbury Plain for thousands of years, you can feel the pulse of powerful earth energy currents coursing beneath your feet, imagine the ceremonies which have been performed by robed priests over aeons of time or just sit in quiet meditation. We will have a group ceremony to connect with the power of Stonehenge before you have free time to experience this World Heritage Site in your own way. This is a rare opportunity to truly experience a site revered by countless generations.
After our visit we’ll have a hearty breakfast at a nearby hotel replenishing our energy for our day in Salisbury. On our way we call at Woodhenge and Durrington Walls to understand the part they played in the greater Stonehenge landscape. Then its on to Old Sarum, a site with a very long and varied history, to explore the energies, former cathedral and castle ruins. It sits on a leyline linking Stonehenge and Salisbury cathedral.
From there we arrive at the popular medieval city of Salisbury. We’ll take lunch in the cathedral’s magnificent medieval cloisters, where you can see the tower that supports the tallest spire in England. We’ll take a tour of Salisbury Cathedral guided by one of the cathedral guides to learn of its long history and have the opportunity to view the world famous Magna Carta, the document laying down the foundations of civil liberties that has inspired people worldwide for 801 years. The rest of your time is free for you to explore more of Salisbury at your leisure. The city has world-class shopping and cafes contained within its ancient street plan. Free-choice dinner not included.
Day 5, Sun 24th July
This morning we will have an inspirational presentation from Jude Currivan, Ph.D. Jude is a healer, cosmologist and visionary with close ties to Earth Mysteries and the world of archeology in this area.

Jude is a wll known and respected Hay House author who has written five books including ‘CosMos – a co-creator’s guide to the whole-world’ co-authored with Dr Ervin Laszlo. She is a brilliant and popular presenter, bringing together wisdom from our ancient ancestors to the present.
After lunch at the Divine Café we will visit Knoll Down, a tranquil sacred grove of trees, that is the ‘tail’ of the Avebury Serpent Temple and was once connected to Avebury by an avenue of stones stretching for a mile and a quarter. Cameron will lead you in a guided meditation to connect with this ancient site. A similar avenue led off from Avebury in another direction culminating at The Sanctuary, the ‘head’ of the Serpent Temple where we will find a node point of the Mary & Michael earth energy currents. Following our visits in the Avebury landscape we will drive through the Pewsey Vale, where more crop circles have occurred than anywhere else in the world. Dinner at hotel.
Day 6, Mon 25th July
We will spend this day in Glastonbury, the legendary Isle of Avalon. This is located fifty miles west along the St Michael line; Glastonbury and Avebury being the two most powerful energy centres along this leyline. We start our visit at the St. Margaret Chapel, commonly known as the Magdalene Chapel. This twelfth century chapel and accompanying almshouses are an oasis of peace. We will visit Glastonbury Abbey, once the largest and most powerful abbey in all of Britain and the reputed resting place of King Arthur and Guinevere. It is also famous for being the location of the “Auld Church” the first Christian church in these islands, and founded by Joseph of Arimathea.
We have a long lunch break to allow time to explore the myriad of alternative shops such as ‘Man, Myth & Magik’, ‘The Speaking Tree’ or ‘The Goddess & the Green Man’. Rising dramatically from the flat land of the surrounding Somerset Levels, the Tor has been a beacon of spirituality since pagan times and still acts as a magnet for people of all beliefs. You will hear the stories and the legends as well as experience the powerful energy and atmosphere of this sacred site. The views from the top are spectacular!
At its foot lies Chalice Well Gardens, a true healing place in this land and an international Peace Garden; and you are encouraged to drink from the holy well where, a local story tells, the Holy Grail is hidden. We will share with you the importance of these waters and those of the White Spring just across the lane. Free-choice dinner not included
Day 7, Tues 26th July
Morning presentation with leading author & presenter – to be announced soon!
After lunch we’ll visit West Kennet Long Barrow, a five and a half thousand year-old underground chamber that was used both as a tomb and a place of initiation. We’ll be joined by author and researcher Peter Knight who has written a book on the barrow, ‘West Kennet Long Barrow; Landscape, Shamans and the Cosmos’. He is an authority on our ancient landscape and weaves this wisdom into his nine books. Peter will explain significance, astronomical and landscape alignments of West Kennet Long Barrow and lead us in a drumming and toning session. Dinner at the hotel
We’ll end our journey visiting two lesser known sacred sites in the Avebury Landscape, Merlin’s Mound, a Neolithic conical pyramid in the grounds of a top private school and Morgan’s Hill, a hilltop magical copse of trees overlooking the Pewsey Vale… both with stories to tell and mysteries to be explored!

It has been an amazing journey, rich with the beauty of life and all that it encompasses!
Since meeting Glenn she has had the pleasure of living in Britain for several years and now spends half her time there leading pilgrimages exploring Britain’s ancient and modern mysteries. It gives her great pleasure as an American to share her enthusiasm and love for the magic of England, its legends, myths and mysteries. Cameron is deeply aware of the transformations that such journeys can bring about and she looks forward to meeting you and helping to make your journey a truly unforgettable one. While in Vermont, Cameron continues her healing practice of twenty six years as a massage therapist and energy healer.
About Glenn Broughton
Glenn, who is English, has been researching and visiting ancient sacred sites for twenty years and is drawn to explore their energetic properties and how such places of power affect us today. Knowing intuitively that they have something to teach us Glenn has been a tour guide for most of this time leading groups exploring the mystery of sacred sites. Glenn lecturers internationally on sacred sites, earth mysteries and crop circles, and is the co-founder/co-organizer of Earth Spirit Conferences in the USA. He has appeared on television and radio and regularly presents at conferences on both sides of the Atlantic.
Glenn came to sacred sites via a circuitous life path which included school-teaching, founding and running an inner city community arts centre, pioneering wholesale organic produce distribution in the UK, and leading spiritual development and earth mysteries groups and workshops. Running alongside all of these activities was a constant spiritual exploration which opened many doors and led to many questions. Practising Vipassana meditation, traveling, and training with the National Federation of Spiritual Healers and the International College of Crystal Healing, were all experiences which have informed his current perspective.
