Explore the countryside from London with a private tour to Winchester, Salisbury, and Stonehenge. Your private tour (9 hours) from London begins with a pickup at your London hotel or flat.
First stop in your private tour is Winchester. Once capital of England, it has a fine Norman cathedral, an ancient school, and quaint streets that wind their way up to the castle where King Arthur's Round Table can be seen.
Next stop in your day is Salisbury, a medieval city dominated by a magnificent cathedral built in only 60 years from 1220 to 1280. The cathedral has the tallest spire in Britain.
Your tour will continue to Stonehenge, Britain's darkest mystery. The giant stones towering 21 ft (6.4 m) high and weighing up to 50 tons will cause you to reflect how stones of such monumental scale could ever have been quarried, transported, and erected 5,000 years ago when the only tools available were made of wood, bone and stone.
If you'd prefer, you could visit just the stone circles of Stonehenge and Avebury in a six hour tour.
