Salisbury, Stonehenge and Windsor Castle tour notes

Salisbury Cathedral

Salisbury Cathedral

This tour is a rewarding day of sightseeing seeing three very different attractions. You are accompanied throughout by a professional tour guide.

Salisbury Cathedral

Only 30 minutes' drive from the cruise terminals at Southampton, Salisbury is a new city (for England), only started in the 13th Century when the Cathedral was built. About the same time as the Magna Carta was being signed, a copy of which is on view in the Chapter House of the Cathedral.


The Cathedral is one of the best Cathedrals in England and has the tallest spire of them all. One of the mind blowing aspects of the Cathedral is that its foundations are only 3-4 feet deep, so don't jump up and down!


Note: Sundays there will be services in the Cathedral and we are unable to guarantee entry.

Salisbury what to expect




It is only a 30 minute journey to Stonehenge from Salisbury so you can get a glimpse of some of the best of the English countryside.

We will spend around 100 minutes at Stonehenge, time enough to take in this world famous monument from 4000-5000 years ago.

The tour manager will give an introduction to this amazing site, and you will then have the option to enter which includes an audio guide explaining the many myths, theories and legends behind this prehistoric monument.

With admission at Stonehenge you get a complementary audio guide in a choice of languages.

Stonehenge what to expect

Important! - Advanced ticketing for Stonehenge

Advance booking is required for visits to Stonehenge, as entrance is managed through timed tickets. If you do not pre-book your entry ticket with the tour we cannot guarantee you will gain entry on the day.

Windsor Castle

Windsor Castle


It is around a 75 minute journey to Windsor, mostly along fast motorway/freeway to Windsor. We pass Royal Ascot race course and travel through Windsor Great Park arriving early afternoon.

Windsor Castle is one of three official residences of The Queen and has been home to the Sovereign for over 900 years.


The Castle is the largest inhabited castle in the world and the oldest in continuous occupation. The imposing towers and battlements of the Castle loom large from every approach to the town, creating one of the world's most spectacular skylines.

We do not carry outsize items (e.g. bicycles) and you MUST inform us in advance if you have a wheelchair, mobility vehicle etc.

We are very interested in your anticipated luggage not from a perspective of hitting you with supplemental excess luggage charges but from the perspective of avoiding not having enough capacity in the luggage hold.


The cap on the number of passengers we book on a bus is driven by a simple equation assuming each passenger will be bringing no more than two large cases.
