Your next stop will be Windsor Castle, a royal residence that embodies almost a thousand years of historical architecture. The original castle was built after the Norman invasion in the tenth century as a strategic part of the River Thames. The castle has been modified over the years and in recent history has been used for state vists. The Castle was the main residence of Queen Elizabeth II in the closing decade of her reign.
Windsor Castle, Stonehenge & Salisbury Cathedral Tour
Itinerary so far...
This tour is simply packed full of goodies. We visit three major UK attractions—royal Windsor Castle, the prehistoric stone circle at Stonehenge, and the awe-inspiring Salisbury Cathedral with the country's tallest spire.
You start your tour with a stop off at Eton—home town of the renowned school with the same name. Famous Etonians include Prince William, Boris Johnson, George Orwell and Hugh Laurie.
After a sandwich lunch on the go it's time for your tour of the Neolithic site at Stonehenge. You'll certainly feel the magic of the ancient stones which were laid dow 4 to 5 thousand years ago. It's true function is not fully understood but the fact that it aligns with the summer and winter solstices suggests it was used as an ancient calendar.
You'll also get to see Woodhenge, an ancient Neolithic site of wooden posts which have long since rotted away. It's an important World Heritage Site and consists of six concentric ovals of standing posts, surrounded by a bank and ditch.
Close by is Salisbury, a beautiful medieval city built on a prehistoric site. See the magnificent Salisbury Cathedral which boasts the tallest spire in Britain. Built between 1220 and 1280, the Cathedral still holds one of the original copies of Magna Carta. There's lots of artistic and historical things to see at the cathedral including a modernist sculpture by Barbara Hepworth and a fouteenth century mechanical clock.
