Full-Day Tour of Salisbury and Stonehenge from Salisbury
See the ancient wonder of Stonehenge in modern comfort. This tour will show you the ancient English heritage and many sites of historic and cultural interest, including Stonehenge and the Medieval City of Salisbury with its famous Cathedral and Magna Carta dating back to 1220. The tour dives into the depths of history and discovers the how, when, where and why of Stonehenge & ancient past of humans, from Neolithic Man to the present day.

The tour starts at 9am from Salisbury Train Station or Central Car Park Coach Park in Salisbury.

It begins in the Medieval Cathedral City with all of its history and mystique where you enjoy a tour of the City before spending an hour at the Cathedral taking in the tallest spire and the Magna Carta (subject to opening times) before departing at 10.15am for a brief stop at Old Sarum, the original City of Salisbury. This Iron Age settlement became Salisbury after visits from Saxons, Danes, Vikings and Normans. Old Sarum offers wonderful views over the City and the surrounding landscape. This is where King John had his garrisons in the early 1200s before the barons rose up against the King which resulted in the Magna Carta being sealed in 1215.

You will depart Old Sarum at 11am and follow a narrow riverside road through a picturesque valley with its own history to tell. Here you can take in the many thatched cottages and begin to learn the history that surrounds Stonehenge.

Arriving at Stonehenge at 11.30am you will spend two hours experiencing the new visitor centre and the Ancient Stones before heading to a local family friendly pub for your pre-booked lunch. Arriving at the pub at 1.45pm you will have an hour before departing to see the Mighty Amesbury Ancestor and travelling to the 10th Century Church of St Mary & St. Melor. Arriving here at 3pm you will discover a breathtaking account of the place where history began and uncover the reason why Stonehenge is where it is. Here you will meet and unlock a treasure trove as you journey through time to one of Britain\'s best kept secrets, exploring the Oldest continuous settlement in England (as recognised by Guinness). The site of recent Archaeological discoveries of which we have exclusive access to will leave you amazed and very glad that you took this tour of discovery.

Leaving Amesbury at 4.45pm you begin your return journey to Salisbury Train Station, Central Coach Park or a local hotel (if you are staying overnight). The tour will be completed at 5.30pm.
