Included Sightseeing Excursions

Stone Age England
Onto the Salisbury Plain this morning as we arrive at Stonehenge, one of the wonders of the world and the most famous pre-historic monument in Europe. Discover the amazing stone circle – to this day its creation remains shrouded in mystery – and the impressive visitor centre containing nearly 300 objects from Stonehenge and surrounding monuments. In the afternoon we continue to nearby Salisbury, famous for its magnificent Gothic cathedral with England’s tallest spire, where the grid-like streets and half-timbered housesare a joy to explore.

Pompey & the Downs
A full day excursion as we tour through the pretty South Downs National Park, dominating the Sussex countryside to the attractive village of Midhurst, before we reach the south coast and the naval town of Portsmouth. Here there is time to explore the historic dockyards, ascend the Spinnaker Tower for spectacular views of
the Solent or browse the shops of popular Gunwharf Quay.

Medieval Hampshire
A full day excursion as we make our way to Winchester, the Royal capital of Saxon Wessex, with its splendid centre and magnificent cathedral and also the medieval Great Hall with its round table – giving rise to many King Arthur rumours. In the afternoon we tour into the New Forest with its famous ponies and elusive deer, reaching Lyndhurst with time to explore at leisure.
