Stonehenge with a 1 hour wait Tour
Our popular Stonehenge transfer tour is an absolute must for any visitor to Wiltshire.
Stonehenge is without doubt the major destination for Cruise passengers looking for a shore excursion in Southampton. Being based just 30minutes 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".
Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument located in the English county of Wiltshire, about 2.0 miles (3.2 km) west of Amesbury and 8 miles (13 km) north of Salisbury. One of the most famous sites in the world, Stonehenge is composed of a circular setting of large standing stones set within earthworks. It is at the center of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England, including several hundred burial mounds.
Archaeologists believe the stone monument was constructed anywhere from 3000 BC to 2000 BC, as described in the chronology below. Radiocarbon dating in 2008 suggested that the first stones were erected in 2400–2200 BC, whilst another theory suggests that bluestones may have been erected at the site as early as 3000 BC
Salisbury City and/or Salisbury Cathedral with 1,2 or 3 hour wait
A tour transfer to the Cathedral City of Salisbury is highly recommended as part of your transfer from Gatwick and Heathrow Airports, or from Southampton seaports.
Salisbury is unique amongst medieval English cathedrals having been built in just 38 years (1220 - 1258) in a single architectural style, early English Gothic. The tower and spire (Britain’s tallest) were added about 50 years later. The building itself is remarkable, a testimony to the faith and practical skills of those who erected it.
But it is much more than a historical monument. It is a living church and a place of prayer. As the Cathedral Church of the Salisbury diocese it is Mother Church of several hundred parishes in Wiltshire and Dorset. It is also a centre of pilgrimage for hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.
New Forest detour
We also have a transfer tour for the wildlife lovers with our special airport or seaport transfer tour to the New Forest in Hampshire.
Close to Southampton is the New Forest. The “New” Forest was in fact created 1000yrs ago as a place for William the Conqueror and his successors to enjoy their sport of hunting wild deer and other animals.
Today, the New Forest, which is a National Park, is home to 3000 wild ponies and other animals and a popular destination for rest and relaxation. The ponies roam freely amongst the woodland and heathland and can be seen on the village commons. One half expects to come across Robin Hood and his Merry Men in any clearing. We shall briefly stop at the spot where William Rufus (William the Conqueror’s son and successor) was killed by a stray arrow.
We can tailor any tour transfer of your choice for any length of time you require or destination. For any further requirements you have please call one of our tour specialists on 01722 421777
