Countryside & Cottages, Cream Teas and Village Pubs
The New Forest is a former royal hunting area in the south of England. It was created in 1079 by William I (known as William the Conqueror) as a hunting area, principally of deer. It is a unique area of historical, ecological and agricultural significance, and retains many of the rural practices conceded by the Crown in historical times to local people
Picturesque Villages, bustling market towns and a special atmosphere and timelessness. Ponies and cattle roam freely around villages, following ancient forest tracks used for centuries by Commoners and their livestock. Picturesque thatched cottages tucked away in unexpected places, the New Forest has remained untouched by time, steeped in old customs and history, enabling visitors to unwind and enjoy its tranquil atmosphere.
Get To Understand Stonehenge Like Few Others From Southampton
The average tour bus spends at the very most one hour at Stonehenge. Time enough for those just curious to witness in person this world famous monument, get a few photographs, a better understanding of the mysteries of Stonehenge and perhaps a memento from the gift shop.
If you want something more than this, then this maybe is for you.
We have a team of local guides who specialise in Stonehenge and the Neolithic era. We can offer a detailed tour that explores all facets connected to Stonehenge, going well beyond what you hear on the audio tape.
Nothing is taboo, we cover in depth the archeological, planetary and mystical/pagan strands that intertwine in uncovering what Stonehenge is, and what it is all about.
Its not a dry lecture tour either, its very much a hands-on tour, we’ll track ley lines,enter inside Neolithic burial mounds and walk the ceremonial routes into the henges. You’ll also see some of the very best of the English Countryside and if you wish visit a village pub, away from the tourist crowds.
