Meet with our London Walks guide at 8.45AM outside of the main ticket office at Waterloo Station in Central London. There, he or she will take you in hand and with them you will take the train to Salisbury.
The tour will start with a bit of sightseeing in Salisbury. With the River Avon and medieval streets lined by half-timbered houses with high over-sailing upper floors and tall gables and rejoicing in names like Ox Row and Silver Street and Fish Row. Salisbury is Thomas Hardy’s Melchester and Anthony Trollope’s Barchester – and views over the meadows that Constable painted.
Our guides will also take you to the magnificent Salisbury Cathedral, where they will show one of the few surviving copies of the Magna Carta.
At the start of the afternoon tour, you will be picked up from Salisbury train station by a local London Walks chartered coach. We will take you through picturesque country roads that wind through rural Wiltshire, past the ancient site of Old Sarum and through a lush valley, past old churches and thatched cottages and country mansions and dry stone walls, past grazing horses and the river Avon and trout fishermen. Yes, we’re bound for Stonehenge, approaching it the way it should be approached.
Welcome to Neolithic England. This stone circle which has been standing since circa 3000 BC. An English treasure. All the more magical during the solstice when the stones align with the sun rays at sunrise. Our guides will give you a tour of Stonehenge so no need for an audio guide! You will also have time to walk the site at your own pace.
Our coach will then take you back to Salisbury train station where you will catch the train back to London Waterloo, always accompanied by our tour guide. You should be back for around 6.30PM.
Yes! Super Adults can enjoy a reduced fee of £95. For youngsters aged 9 to 15, the full day trip is reduced to £81.
You will have plenty of time for lunch at your leisure. You may want to bring your own lunch pack or eat in one of Salisbury’s many cafes.
In 1915, the lock millionaire Cecil Chubb bought Stonehenge for his wife. She didn’t like it, so in 1918 he gave it to the nation.
“We did three excursions with London Walks. We went to Salisbury/Stonehenge, Oxford/Cotswolds, and Bath. All three trips were wonderful. We travelled by rail to the various locations and were either able to walk to the tour areas, or we were picked up by coach buses and taken to the sites. The guides Simon and Hillary were extremely knowledgeable and fun to listen to. There was the perfect mix of guided tours and free time to explore on our own. I highly recommend London Walks. Also, the prices charged were very reasonable. The total cost was much less than the cost of the train ride alone.” Amex Traveller from Chicago, Illinois
