Aerial View of Salisbury Cathedral and Cathedral Close
Our first stop on our Southampton to London tour is the historic town of Salisbury, a 45 minute drive from Southampton. Enter through the 13th Century St Ann’s Gate on a 20-30 minute walking tour into the vast Cathedral Close for a photo stop. Here, you will find ancient houses and courtyards. The 13th Century Salisbury Cathedral stands majestic within the grounds with its monumental spire, the tallest in England, and magnificent stained glass windows. This is quintessential historic England.
Following our visit to Salisbury Cathedral, we head through Salisbury’s pretty town centre and into the gorgeous English countryside towards Stonehenge. On arrival at Stonehenge, your guide will explain the history and heritage of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. Learn more about how this site was constructed and why it was built in the first place. Stonehenge is one of the most popular places to visit in the UK, and amongst the most mysterious locations in the world. From here, you have the option of visiting the stone circles as well as the visitor’s center, the Neolithic Village, and the gift shop. There is also an excellent cafe on site.
Aerial View of Windsor Castle
Windsor Castle is the last stop on our Southampton to London day trip. It is the longest continuously inhabited castle in the world and home to the British royal family. Discover over 900 years of history on a visit to the State Rooms. Visit St George’s Chapel, located in the Castle grounds, where Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip were laid to rest. It is also where Harry and Meghan tied the knot. Admire the incredible interiors, luxury furnishings, and impressive architecture on a self-guided visit to the Castle. Excellent audio guides are included. Please note that St George’s Chapel is closed on Sundays, but visitors are welcome to attend services.
The Grand Reception Room, Windsor Castle
Entrance tickets to Windsor Castle are optional extras. If you choose not to visit Windsor Castle, you’ll have time to walk around the pretty town centre of Windsor and nearby Eton.
Windsor Castle is closed on Tuesdays & Wednesdays. On these days you will visit the pretty town of Windsor and nearby Eton instead. Windsor is a blend of history and modernity. Stroll along the cobbled streets, lined with traditional shops, cafes, and pubs, and down to the promenade on the River Thames.
