Escape to a world a million miles from your everyday life where ponies, cattle, donkeys and deer roam free. Wild Horses won’t be able to drag you away from the New Forest once you’ve experienced its peace and fallen in love with the forest’s idyllic glades, ancient woodland, open moors, heathland and cliff top walks. Also enjoy a visit to the delightful town of Salisbury, including a visit to its famous Cathedral with Britain’s tallest spire and best-preserved Magna Carta.

Paint me a picture:
Meet your professional driver guide on arrival at Southampton Cruise Terminal at 8am and relax in the comfort of an air-conditional vehicle. You’ll start the day by travelling to the New Forest and we will begin with a visit to Beaulieu which means “Beautiful Place” and that is exactly what it is. The town is located on the stunning Beaulieu River which attracts a wealth of wild birds.
Our next stop is Lyndhurst affectionately known by locals as the capital of the Forest. Lyndhurst has been visited by kings and queens staying at the Royal Manor throughout the centuries. The local church contains the grave of Alice Liddell, who was the inspiration for Lewis Carol’s “Alice in Wonderland”.
From here we continue our journey through the New Forest to Brockenhurst which has been officially declared ‘Britain’s Most Beautiful Place to Live’. The area is home to ponies, deer, donkeys and cows – all of which are known to roam the main street.
The last New Forest village that we visit is Burley which is most famous for its witchcraft having been home to a coven of White Witches and a haunt of Smugglers.
We now leave the New Forest and travel to Salisbury a historic city that grew up around its impressive cathedral. Upon arrival, you enjoy a walking tour of the city with its many charming timber framed houses and different areas which were dedicated to specific trades, such as Fish Row, Butcher Row and Poultry Cross.
After your walking tour of the city you explore over 800 years of history at Salisbury Cathedral, one of the UK’s most iconic medieval buildings. The Cathedral is a magnificent example of early English Gothic architecture with fascinating treasures including the original 1215 Magna Carta, one of only four in the world. Also you get to see Britain’s tallest spire and the world’s oldest working mechanical clock.
We then drive back to your Southampton cruise in plenty of time for your departure. Alternatively, if you have finished your cruise then we are happy to drop you off at your London hotel or Heathrow Airport for an extra fee of £75.
