This tour explores the deep history, breathtaking views and unique wildlife, made possible in the UK’s largest military training area. From the comfort of Land Rover Defender, experience Wiltshire as you have never seen before, with unparalleled access to an area the size of the Isle of Wight you are sure to find a memory to tell your friends about. As this is a private tour you have the option to choose which elements of life on the plain you wish to focus on and tailor the tour to suit. Simply put, the best way to experience the landscape that surrounds Stonehenge and escape the crowds. A typical tour encompasses elements of history, photography opportunities and off-roading, you will also find a nice place to stop and have tea and biscuits before heading back to your collection point.
What You'll Get
Beginning from your chosen collection point the group will make its way to Salisbury Plain. Upon joining your tour route (which can change due to military activity) you begin to make your way around a circuit of the military firing range, stopping for photo opportunities and chances to explore the local flora and fauna en route.
Depending on access you will either make our way across the downland taking in Copehill Down military camp or take a trip through the firing ranges themselves and take a look at the craters and shattered hulks that are used for target practice on the plain. During the tour you will take in spectacular views across Pewsey Vale, seeing the White horses at Westbury, Devizes and Alton Barnes before descending from a height of 221m to the valley floor and hearing the story of the Robbers Stone.
A short road journey takes in the villages of Chittern and Tilshead before collecting the tracks again to head across country to Parsonage Down nature reserve. It is here in a secluded little known corner of Wiltshire that you stop for tea and biscuits, listening to the birdsong and perhaps the thrum of an Apache helicopter!
You embark once more for a short but very off road trip past Yarnbury Castle (actually an Iron Age hill fort) before returning to your location via Stonehenge and the historic town of Larkhill, birthplace of the RAF and current home to the Royal Artillery.
