You'll start the day from Southampton by travelling to the New Forest 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.
The next stop is at 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, the journey will continue 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 you will visit is Burley, which is most famous for its witchcraft having been home to a coven of White Witches and a haunt of Smugglers.
You'll then leave the New Forest and travel to Salisbury, a historic city that grew up around its impressive cathedral. Upon arrival, you'll enjoy a walking tour of the city with its many charming timber-framed houses. After the walking tour, you can 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 orifical 1215 Magna Carta! You'll also get to see Britain's tallest spire and the world's oldest working mechanical clock.
You'll then return back to Southampton.
