Description

Immerse yourself in the beautiful landscape of the west of England on a 10-hour tour from London, and learn about the rich heritage of its pagan past and royal history in Salisbury, Stonehenge and Windsor. Departing from central London, drive west to the monoliths of Stonehenge, which have confounded people for over 5,000 years. Having baffled historians and archaeologists as to how it was built, learn about some of the theories. Continue to the market town of Salisbury, best known for its 13th-century cathedral. Built during the reign of Henry III, it boasts the tallest church spire in the United Kingdom at 404 feet (123 meters), and is one of the finest examples of early Gothic English architecture. Visit Salisbury Cathedral, and be welcomed by a specialist Salisbury Cathedral Guide and given an introductory talk before their tour. Marvel at the Magna Carta, the famous agreement made between King John and his barons at Runnymede in 1215, and now housed in the Chapter House. Explore Royal history with a visit to the queen's official residence, Windsor Castle: witness the changing tastes in decor of the State Apartments over centuries of monarchs living there; see paintings by Leonardo Da Vinci and Rembrandt; admire Queen Mary's dolls house, the most famous dolls house in the world; and see St George's Chapel, the final resting place for several monarchs.
