Itinerary

08:00

I meet you and your party at your cruise ship and we set off towards the New Forest which dates back to the time of William the Conqueror who used it to pursue his love of hunting. We pass the spot where his grandson King William II was killed by a stray arrow. The New Forest is also home to 3,000 wild ponies that roam freely alongside pigs and cattle.

Heading over Punchbowl Hill the Cathedral Spire comes into view just as it did for the medieval pilgrims.


09:15

Salisbury Cathedral (suggested voluntary donation £6.50 adult, child £3.00, concession £5.50)

This is located in England’s most beautiful Cathedral Close and houses apart from the Magna Carta also the oldest working clock in the world. I will show you a tomb that states that the young boy died before he was born!!!


10:15

Leaving Salisbury we travel along narrow country lanes alongside the river Avon towards Stonehenge. Through picturesque villages with thatched cottages we see the house that William Pitt, after whom Pittsburgh is named, once resided.

A quick stop at our local aristocrat’s estate allows you a glimpse of “how the other half lives”.

A little further we pass the house of the singer/songwriter “Sting” and travel amongst the fields of barley that inspired his haunting song “Fields of Gold”. We also see the little church to which Sting took Madonna and her then newly wedded husband, Guy Ritchie, to Midnight Mass at Christmas time during their honeymoon whilst they stayed at Sting’s house.

We stop at West Amesbury were recent discoveries have increased our understanding of the purpose of Stonehenge and I shall explain the significance of the “Amesbury Archer” and “Bluestonehenge” to you.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Stonehenge and Avebury with Chris. He was pleasant and informative: he had a good knowledge of the history of the area, but also had entertaining stories to tell.

On our trip around the UK we thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Stonehenge, Salisbury and the countryside of southern England. Chris was an excellent host and really knows the area, it was great value for money!
