Private Tour to Salisbury, Stonehenge and Windsor Castle
1. Private Tour of Stonehenge:
Tailored Tours welcomes you to this private tour of Stonehenge, Salisbury and Windsor. Starting the morning in the county of Wiltshire, your very own history expert will introduce you to the world’s most famous prehistoric sight; Stonehenge. Here you will explore all the myths, legends and facts surrounding this legendary monument. Your guide will escort you around the stones, explaining how, when, and why Stonehenge was built. Arriving at the stones in the morning, you will avoid all the busy public tours and get a great view of Stonehenge before the other tours arrive.
2. Drive past Old Sarum:
On the way down to Salisbury we will drive past a 3000 year old Iron Age Hill Fort called Old Sarum. Once a home to pagan worship and The Druids, Old Sarum was a very important settlement for not just the Celts, but also The Romans, The Saxons and William The Conqueror. There are still some ruins of King William’s The Conqueror’s Castle that can be seen from the tour van.
3. Private Tour of Salisbury Cathedral:
Just 2 miles south of Old Sarum is the Medieval City of Salisbury. Here you can see how a city can be transformed into a mighty trading power and centre of commerce through the power of religion. The Cathedral became a centrepiece to a brand new city created in 1220, and with its consecration just 38 years later, it became the quickest built cathedral in the world. In 1330 they added an enormous spire which still stands today at a staggering height of 123 metres. Indeed, this was the tallest spire in the world upon completion, and still is the tallest spire in the UK today. What is more, thousands of visitors are drawn to Salisbury Cathedral each year to see the best kept copy of Magna Carta left in existence!
4. Windsor Castle:
In the afternoon we step inside over 900 years of Royal History to the largest inhabited castle in the world! Spanning over 13 acres in size, no castle in the world boasts the combined opulance and grandeur as Windsor Castle. Not only is it the Queen’s favourite royal residence today, but it has been the home of 39 different monarchs since William The Conqueror’s construction. Saint George’s Chapel is not only a magnificent piece of Gothic Architecture, but a popular attraction to see where the 2018 wedding took place between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Here also lies two of our most famous monarchs, King Henry VIII and Charles I.
