For the history lovers

Salisbury Cathedral

Salisbury’s ancient city centre is just a few miles away and home to the magnificent Salisbury Cathedral and the Magna Carta. A visit to the Cathedral provides the opportunity to see beautifully carved monuments and tombs, the famous Father Willis Organ, regular art exhibitions, and the world’s oldest working mechanical clock as well as being home to the best preserved of only four surviving Magna Carta (AD1215).

Old Sarum

The Old Sarum is the site of the earliest settlement of Salisbury in England and appears in some of the earliest records in the country. Old Sarum combines a royal castle and cathedral within an Iron Age fortification and is one of the most historically significant sites in southern England. Visitors get to climb the mighty ramparts for views over the Wiltshire plains and imagine the once thriving town of Old Sarum.


Stonehenge is one of the most famous landmarks in the United Kingdom and regarded as a British cultural icon. Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument consisting of a ring of standing stones, each around 13 feet high, seven feet wide, and weighing around 25 tons. The stones are set within the middle of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England, including several hundred tumuli (burial mounds).

Romsey Abbey

Romsey Abbey can trace its origins back to 907 AD and remains the largest parish church in Hampshire. With a lofty nave and round Norman arches, Romsey Abbey is one of the most imposing churches in Southern England. It’s home to a number of treasures, including two Saxon roods, a 16th-century reredos (a screen displayed behind an altar) and the tomb of the Lord Mountbatten of Burma, great-uncle of Prince Charles.


Broadlands is considered one of the finest examples of mid-Georgian architecture in England.  It stands serenely in a unique place in British history, having had several distinguished owners and many of its important visitors have helped to shape the course of history. Built in 1767, this stately and magnificent home of Lord Mountbatten contains an extensive portrait collection, elegant furnishings and china collections.
