Southampton Port: London via Salisbury, Stonehenge & Windsor

1. Southampton Port: London via Salisbury, Stonehenge & Windsor

The first stop on your excursion is Salisbury, boasting one of the finest Gothic Cathedrals in Britain, built in the 13th century, and a stunning medieval town center. You’ll spend an hour in Salisbury before departing for mysterious Stonehenge. The drive from Salisbury to Stonehenge takes you through some beautiful English countryside and villages, passing historic churches and thatched cottages. Before arriving at Stonehenge your guide will tell you about the many myths, legends, and facts surrounding this prehistoric structure. Stonehenge has been described as one of the greatest mysteries of the prehistoric world. Was it a temple, a clock, a burial site, or something else? On arrival you’ll have time for a visit and an audio-guided tour around the world famous stones (admission fee not included), or time to browse the gift shop. After 90 minutes at Stonehenge you’ll depart for Royal Windsor, where you’re scheduled to arrive in time for a late lunch. You’ll then have some time to explore the city and castle. Windsor Castle is the largest continuously occupied castle in the world and your guide will tell you about its history from William the Conqueror to the current Queen (admission not included, closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays). If you opt not to enter Windsor castle, enjoy a stroll through the old town and Eton. The coach departs Windsor at 16:00 and passengers will be dropped off at major Heathrow hotels beginning at 16:45. When booking, please specify your hotel and the terminal, if applicable. Drop offs are also provided at terminals 1-5. A drive into London is next, which is less than an hour from Heathrow. The guide will manage the hotel drop offs, where additional vehicles or taxis may be used (included in the price) to ensure the hotel drops are completed as quickly as possible. Drop off options include 250 London hotels and selected main line London train stations.

I thought I was going to be able to get the entrance tickets for Stonehenge and Windsor Castle from the guide, but that wasn't the case. While we were able to get entrance tickets to Stonehenge when we arrived, we were not able to get entrance tickets to Windsor Castle because it was sold out. I was very disappointed to not be able to go into Windsor Castle.

We caught this tour after our cruise and it was the best way to finish off a great vacation. Rob provided great insight and historical information of these sights, as well as some other insights into the town. We were limited on time at these great stops but overall, with everyone penny. Highly recommend it!

Really great way to get from the Southampton port to London after a cruise. The bus was great - modern tour bus, and the tour guide was very knowledgeable. Stonehenge was a great learning experience, and seeing Windsor was good for someone from the USA.

Prompt pickup at the hotel. Enjoyable ride with a stop for the toilet and coffee. Information about the region and Stonehenge from our guide. The museum is very well done and did a wonderful job explaining the site.

It was a good tour going to the port via Stonehedge. We bought our Airfare with NCL, their going back tour to Stonehedge is not available because we have to be at the Airport 3 hours before our flight.
