An off-road tour of Salisbury Plain for up to 6 guests. Join this tour to explore deep history, breathtaking views and unique wildlife, made possible in the UK's largest military training area.

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.
  • Roar down rutted tracks and country lanes in a 4-wheel drive vehicle
  • See Stonehenge, hill forts, and the UK’s largest military training area
  • View the giant chalk white horses at Westbury, Devizes, and Alton Barnes
  • Flexible, small-group tour is limited to a maximum of six guests
What to Expect
Tour routes can change depending on military activity, but a typical tour runs like this. After pickup from Shrewton, Salisbury, or Stonehenge, head to Salisbury Plain and make a circuit of the military firing range. Depending on access, either visit a military camp or drive through the firing ranges proper with their craters and shattered hulks.
See the white horses at Westbury, Devizes, and Alton Barnes, and discover the history of these unique artworks. View the villages of Chitterne and Tilshead, and stop for tea and biscuits in the Parsonage Down nature reserve. Zoom past the Iron Age hill fort known as Yarnbury Castle before returning to your pickup point by way of Stonehenge and the historic town of Larkhill, birthplace of the RAF.
