Stone Seekers Tours offers a wide range of fantastic field trips and tours that run throughout the year. These inspiring events will transform your experience of our ancient land and its monuments. Explore, with Peter, your heritage and think about the messages, left in stone, by our ancestors. What were they saying and what does all this mean to you right now.

Mini-bus tours are run periodically in association with Discover Dorset Tours. Please contact them for details, bookings and prices. Peter is the guide on these tours, and these trips are also available for private hire. www.discoverdorset.co.uk

Private Day Tour of Stonehenge and Avebury (Running all year round with pick-up’s at Salisbury and Chippenham (fast trains from London) and cost just £120 for a max of four people – so could work out at only £30 each!). This is a very personal one-to-one tour of these magical places, with Peters insight and discoveries, and additional sites not included on ‘normal’tours. You will see the Alton Barnes White Horse, Avebury Henge (the world’s biggest stone circle), the 5,500 yr old chambered tomb of West Kennet, Silbury Hill, plus a stone avenue, and then to the unique monument of Stonehenge (not special access – see below). The tours include Peter’s 20 years of expert knowledge and tuition in dowsing and earth energies, ley lines, archeo-astronomy, and may include any crop circles that may be in the area (in season), as well as optional meditations and drumming inside the ancient 5,500 yr old tomb! The day also includes details of the huge landscape hexagram, The Wessex Astrum, which Peter and Toni Perrott uncovered, involves Glastonbury, Stonehenge and Avebury.

Regarding Stonehenge Special Access Peter has ceased doing these tours now, although his tour above does go within meters of the stones, and includes a guided tour of the new museum at Stonehenge. Peter believes that special access tours are overpriced, too restrictive, at unsociable times, and are very frustrating for people, as no one is even allowed to touch the stones - security guards watch you all the time! This is more than made up for at Avebury and West Kennet, where you can touch and walk amongst the huge stones (which are more numerous and larger than at Stonehenge) and go inside the mysterious ancient chambers of West Kennet Long Barrow.

Mystical Avebury is a full day that includes the main henge, West Kennet Avenue and Long Barrow, Silbury Hill, leys, dowsing and simulacra. It is a truly magical day (usually held in crop circle season) yielding many surprises even to regular Avebury visitors. Experiencing the St Michael Line energies dowsed through the landscape we finish the day with drumming inside West Kennet long barrow.

Shamanic Drumming at Avebury; an evening of dreams we walk, a drum-led procession, along the Kennet Avenue, before moving on to the 5,600 year-old West Kennet long barrow, where we witness the sunset before entering the dark chambers of the womb-tomb for chanting and drumming, didging and dancing!

West Kennet Long Barrow trip is based on Peter’s book on the chambered tomb.

Cerne Giant trip is based on Peter’s new book, a half day tour looking at the Giant, the abbey, sacred well and St Mary’s Church.

Mystical Winchester includes Arthur’s Court, Cathedral, megaliths around the city, St Catherine’s Hill, labyrinth and St Cross.

We stop at chapels, stone sites, woods, barrows, crosses and others sacred places en route. Each year we plan a different pilgrimage route which are for the fairly fit only, please no young children, sorry!

Ley Hunting Around Central Dorset is a full day of following several leys around the landscape, calling in on churches, stones, crosses and barrows, dowsing and studying the pagan symbolism. Maiden Castle. An evening tour to explore Britain’s largest hillfort, including the labyrinthine ramparts, Neolithic remains and Romano-British temple remains. Dowsing, astronomy and leys all included, ending with viewing the sunset from the top of the ramparts.
