Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:

Stonehenge
As compelling today as it was to the people who built the first phase over 5,000 years ago, the mythical stones, about 24-feet tall, have captivated the imagination through the ages. An encircling pathway around the monoliths offers stunning views. At the visitors center you will find more information and informative displays.


Salisbury
Salisbury, nicknamed 'the city in the countryside,' is a lively cathedral city built around its 13th-century Gothic-style cathedral. The cathedral spire is a sight to behold, soaring 400 feet into the sky and dominating the landscape for miles around. The cathedral itself is home to one of only four original Magna Carta, which dates back to 1215 AD and set out the constitution for the country. A walk around the Cathedral Close is an opportunity to observe the quaint black-and-white, half-timbered houses that add charm to this unique location.

What you will see along the way:

The drive from Portland to Stonehenge is approximately two hours each way. Along the way you'll enjoy gazing out the window at views of Portland Harbor then on through the rolling hills of Dorset. The harbor, located at the southernmost part of the coast, was used for over 500 years by the British Royal Navy. Breakwater construction was performed between 1848 and 1905, creating one of the largest man-made harbors in the world, now a popular spot for tourism and sailing events.
Lunch:
While in Salisbury, enjoy a tasty lunch or tea on your own at one of the many pubs or cafés before heading back to port.

Shopping:
Free time is provided to explore the historic town of Salisbury and its array of charming shops.
