Southampton to Stonehenge?

Arriving and departing on a cruise ship on April 24, 2010. We will be in Southampton for about 10 hours (arrive 500 AM need to be back on ship by 300PM)

We would love to visit Stonehenge during the “Stone Circle Access” time which begins at 8:00AM. Is it possible to get from Southampton to Stonehenge by 8:00 AM? If so, how?

Only if you have a car or taxi - normally you would have to take the train to Salisbury from Southampton Central then the tourist bus to Stonehenge which will take about 2 hours but it's unlikely you'd be able to get a train to Salisbury that early

Should be possible - the 0630 train from Southampton arrives at Salisbury at 0707 and a taxi from there will be in time for 0800

And don't leave it too long to book your tickets, as special access gets booked up months in advance, especially as it heads towards summer.


taxi will cost about £45 - £50 from Salisbury (return)
