Stonehenge
You’ll never forget your first glimpse of spectacular Stonehenge, its monolithic rocks rising up against the skyline on Salisbury Plain. Theories abound about the mysterious rock formation. Was it intended as a religious temple? An astronomical clock? A Bronze Age burial ground? Make up your own mind as you explore the unique landmark that has had the world stumped for 5,000 years
Panoramic Tour of Salisbury
Soaring into the skyline, the spire of Salisbury Cathedral stands at a whopping 123m (404ft)! Erected 800 years ago, the revolutionary spire is considered one of the leading examples of Early English architecture. Ancient meets modern at the cathedral’s newest addition: a beautifully sculpted font designed by William Pye

Lunch stop at Newbury
This wonderful 11th century town of Newbury is our lunch stop, where there are a variety of pubs, restaurants and take away’s to choose from or you can bring a packed lunch
Highclere Castle (fictional Downton Abbey)
Highclere Castle is one of England’s most beautiful Victorian Castles set amidst 1,000 acres of spectacular parkland
The Carnarvon family has lived at Highclere since 1679, and the current Castle stands on the site of an earlier house, which in turn was built on the foundations of the medieval palace owned by the Bishops of Winchester for some 800 years

Highclere Christmas Fair
The Earl and Countess of Carnarvon will transform the State Rooms of Highclere Castle to provide a unique shopping experience in aid of Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance and St Michaels & All Angels Church. This will be a festive occasion with our spectacular Christmas tree, carol singers, Christmas decorations and a variety of exciting stalls at which you can complete your Christmas shopping
For those who wish to see a little more of the Castle, there is the option to upgrade your tickets on the day. A suggested donation of £3 to the Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance will allow you to view the magnificent Galleried Bedrooms. You may also upgrade your ticket for an additional £5 to explore the ‘Wonderful Things’ Egyptian Exhibition housed in the cellars of the Castle
