Full-Day Tour of Salisbury and Stonehenge from Salisbury
US$174.48
Overview
Discover four of England’s historical highlights on a scenic full-day coach trip from Salisbury. See Salisbury's top landmarks and visit Salisbury Cathedral, home to a copy of the 1215 Magna Carta. Stop at Old Sarum, Salisbury’s Iron Age settlement, and travel through picturesque countryside and thatched villages to Stonehenge. After strolling around the UNESCO-listed stones and visitor center, break for a traditional pub lunch. Lastly, visit Amesbury, the UK's oldest continuous settlement, to discover its 21st-century sculpture, 'The Ancestor', and St Mary and St Melor Church.
What to Expect
Begin your tour from either Salisbury Train Station or Central Car Park Coach Park in Salisbury.

Explore the medieval city with all of its history and mystique, spending an hour at the Cathedral to take in the tallest spire and the Magna Carta (subject to opening times).

Then make 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.

Depart from Old Sarum and follow a narrow riverside road through a picturesque valley. Here you can take in the many thatched cottages and begin to learn the history that surrounds Stonehenge.

Arriving at Stonehenge, spend two hours experiencing the new visitor center and the ancient stones before heading to The Ancestor in Amesbury and the 10th-century Church of St Mary and St. Melor. Here you will discover a fascinating account of the place and uncover the reason why Stonehenge is where it is.

The journey through time to one of Britain's best kept secrets, exploring the oldest continuous settlement in England (as recognized by Guinness World Records). Enjoy exclusive access to a site of recent archaeological discoveries.

Upon leaving Amesbury, return to Salisbury Train Station, Central Coach Park, or a local hotel (if you are staying overnight), where your tour concludes.
