A Private Day Trip to Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral, the home of The Magna Carta


This day trip excursion takes us to explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the famously mysterious standing stone circle, Stonehenge - plus a visit to the 13th Century Gothic Salisbury Cathedral, home to one of only four original copies of the Magna Carta.
Stonehenge is a huge prehistoric monument, a ring of standing stones whose builders and its purpose remain a mystery.
We shall walk in the footsteps of our Neolithic ancestors and enjoy the Stonehenge Exhibition at the fantastic new English Heritage Visitor Centre.
Salisbury Cathedral is a 13th Century Gothic beauty with the tallest spire in Great Britain, home to one of only four original copies of The Great Charter of 1215 (more commonly known as The Magna Carta). The very foundation of national constitutions in both the U. K and the U. S. A and beyond.
