West Amesbury 15 mins
Our stop here is to give you an understanding of the people who built Stonehenge. This is the start of the Stonehenge Avenue and you will stand at the place used by people 5000 yrs ago on their way to perform their rituals and ceremonies
Stones brought over 250 km were transported from this spot after being off-loaded from the river Avon on to their final destination at Stonehenge. A significant archaeological discovery is a Blue Stone Henge recently found here .
His grave contained the oldest gold ever found in Britain but why did this man, buried when Stonehenge was being built, travel 1000 km from the Alps to be here?
Salisbury Cathedral 1 Hour
Boasting England’s highest spire, The Cathedral of St Mary in Salisbury was unusually built without interruption over just 38 yrs. It’s early English Gothic architecture makes it a building of outstanding beauty, famed for the importance placed on music.
Having seen where it was signed now is the opportunity to see the best of only four remaining copies, located in the Chapter House.

Difficult to tell the time because ancient clocks don’t have faces, but this clock tells the time in a very medieval manner

Close to Southampton is the New Forest. The “New” Forest was in fact created 1000 yrs ago as a place for William the Conqueror and his successors to enjoy their sport of hunting wild deer and other animals.
Today, the New Forest, which is a National Park, is home to 3000 wild ponies and other animals and a popular destination for rest and relaxation. The ponies roam freely amongst the woodland and heath land and can be seen on the village commons. One half expects to come across Robin Hood and his Merry Men in any clearing. We shall briefly stop at the spot where William Rufus (William the Conqueror’s son and successor) was killed by a stray arrow .
