Stonehenge is without doubt the major destination for Cruise passengers looking for a shore excursion in Southampton. Being based just 30 minutes away in Salisbury we have lots of local knowledge which has allowed us to produce a “First Class” experience which will become a lasting memory of your short time in “Olde England”. our vehicles are a choice of an E Class Luxury Mercedes saloon car, a comfortable Mercedes Vito 8 seater Tour Bus or a Luxury Mercedes 16 seater Mini Coach. We have the latest “wireless” audio system for the Vito which means that you can hear your guides commentary “crystal clear” whether you are inside or outside the vehicle. The tour system also works well with standard hearing aides.
Our “Olde England Excursion” succeeds in two areas in particular.
Firstly we ensure that you fully appreciate you visit to Stonehenge by giving you an insight into lives of the people who built Stonehenge. We visit the site of recent discoveries that has shed new light on our understanding of our Neolithic ancestors. We also stop where the people who built Stonehenge lived and when arriving at Stonehenge you will have no trouble identifying burial mounds and the Processional Avenue
Secondly, we know that there is a wealth of interesting and beautiful places in the locality and we enhance your Stonehenge experience with visits to some of these. How about driving through the 1000 yr old New Forest where 3000 wild ponies roam amongst villages and woodland? Well after we finish we can drive bye and say hello to them.
Old Sarum is an Iron Age settlement that precedes Salisbury and was inhabited by Celts, Romans, Saxons, Vikings and Normans. With 360° horizons it looks down on medieval Salisbury. We will show you around this fabulous site home of Kings, Bishops. and chivalrous Knights
Salisbury is known as “The City in the Countryside” and we shall show you why when we visit the spot chosen by John Constable the artist, for his famous paintings of Salisbury Cathedral and The Old Mill at Harnham.
We have found that Cruise Passengers like a quick bite at lunchtime so if the weather is good we organise a small picnic on the lawns of the beautiful Cathedral Close. We visit Salisbury Cathedral, which boasts the highest Spire in England and has the best copy of only four remaining copies of the Magna Carta. You will also see the world’s oldest working clock. Salisbury is a beautiful medieval City and time permitting we can suggest options for shopping etc.
