On embarkation day, we needed to get from downtown London to Southampton to board our cruise. We opted to do a transfer tour that included a stop enroute at Stonehenge. Because…why not!?! It’s one of the seven wonders of the world and in 1986 became a world heritage site. A basic one way transfer from the airport to the port cost $95 through the cruise line. The transfer and tour was only $150 per person with pick up at our hotel. After all, It seemed like a great opportunity to cross this off our bucket list (although we never even actually had Stonehenge on our bucket list). Lol!
We booked our package with Project Expedition. You can take a look at the various tours and transfers that they offer HERE
After being picked up at our hotel promptly at 7:30 am, we transferred via private car to meet up with the bus tour. It was about an hour and a half bus ride to Stonehenge, with a refreshment/bathroom break along the way. Our guide escorted us as a group to the rocks giving us an overview of the history and mystery of Stonehenge. We had about an hour to wander around, take pictures, visit the giftshop and have a snack. Afterwards, we reboarded the bus and had another hour and a half ride to the port of Southampton. We arrived at 1:30 pm and were able to board our ship right away.
It was a great day with perfect weather. I highly recommend a visit to Stonehenge if you are sailing from Southampton. And I think it was definitely built by aliens. Lol!
