Silversea Luxury Cruises A Southampton, England

Southampton, England

Southampton is England's leading passenger port. It is rich in historic embarkations, from Henry V's fleet bound for France and the battle of Agincourt to the Mayflower, the ill-fated Titanic, and the maiden voyages of the great ocean liners of the 20th century such as the Queen Mary and the Queen Elizabeth 2. Parts of the town center can seem mundane, having been hastily rebuilt after World War II bombing, but bits of the city's history emerge from between modern buildings. View more

The Old Town retains its medieval feel, and some remnants of the old castellated town walls remain. Other attractions include a decent art gallery, extensive parks, and a couple of good museums. The Southampton Boat Show, a 10-day event in mid-September, draws huge crowds.

Excursões em Southampton, England

Stonehenge & Salisbury & Heathrow Airport Transfer

Experience two of England's most historic areas on this excursion for in-transit guests inland to world-renowned Stonehenge and the picturesque city of Salisbury.


English Countryside

Depart and travel from the port around the head of Southampton, passing through the suburbs with their variety of houses and neat gardens, heading towards the open countryside. The fresh green and blossoms of the English countryside heighten the hedgerows and stretches of rural landscapes as we enjoy the pastoral and agricultural views. Next continue on to Stonehenge.


Stonehenge

One piece of magic that never fails to cast a spell over visitors is the awe-inspiring sight of Stonehenge. This mighty symbol of pre-history is a wonder of the world drawing thousands of visitors each year to witness its awesome majesty. Simplicity, solitude and a powerful air of mystery surround this enigmatic and ancient circle of stones set in isolation.


From the bus park, walk to the fantastic new visitors centre to learn more about this wondrous sight then take the short ride on the land train down to these mystical stones. Your guide will accompany you along the pathway encircling the fenced-off stones for close-up views. Listen as they describe what has been concluded from observations and archaeological evidence about the builders, their beliefs, tools, and methods. Alternatively, if you prefer, walk around the area on your own and take advantage of the fine photographic opportunities of the entire stone circle.


Salisbury

Leave the unsolved mysteries of silent Stonehenge to the mists of time and re-board the coach for the short drive to Salisbury, whose lofty cathedral spire can be seen from many miles distance. By the end of the 15th century, Salisbury had already achieved a maturity which compels us, despite the fact that it has never ceased to grow since, to think of it essentially as a medieval city. Walk with the guide through the centre to view the charming 13th-century cathedral enshrining 700 years of English history. See the fine buildings within Cathedral Close and the nearby grid streets containing black-and-white half-timbered houses.


Some free time is available for you to browse the streets, peruse the shops, and stop for a quick bite to eat. At the appointed time, re-group for the transfer to Heathrow Airport.


Please Note: This tour is offered to guests disembarking the ship with flights from London Heathrow International Airport at 6:00pm or later and will end at the airport. It requires an extensive amount of walking to thoroughly explore all sites. It is not suitable for guests with limited mobility. Those utilising a wheelchair must be able to embark and disembark the coach via steps. Not all areas are wheelchair accessible and the pathways at Stonehenge are uneven and unpaved. Due to local average temperatures, not all coaches are equipped with air-conditioning. This tour requires a minimum number of participants to operate. Tour sequence may vary.

2NT PRE-CRUISE: ENGLISH MANOR RETREAT

Revel in the pastoral tranquility of a unique hotel - a refined retreat with more than a few surprises. Set in 240 acres of picturesque parkland on the borders of Windsor Great Park, Coworth Park blends the warmth and comfort of a traditional country house hotel with an eccentric spirit that is undeniably English and irrefutably modern.


Please check with your travel professional for details regarding visa requirements for England. It is the responsibility of the guest to obtain all appropriate visas before your cruise.


DAY 1 - ARRIVE COWORTH PARK

You are met at either Gatwick or Heathrow airport according to your flight arrangements and transferred to the heart of Berkshire.


Coworth Park House is a handsome Georgian building dating back to 1776. It is perhaps best known as the home of the 17th Earl of Lord Derby who bought it in 1899 and lived there for almost 50 years until his death in 1948. An association with equestrianism began even before he bought the estate; the Prince and Princess of Wales, the future King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra stayed there in 1879 and 1883 to enjoy the racing at nearby Ascot.


The rest of the afternoon and evening are at your leisure to enjoy this historic home that has welcomed royalty and other notables for centuries. Lunch and dinner are on your own account. If you'd like to dine in the hotel's fine dining restaurant during your stay, these arrangements should be made well in advance.


Overnight at Coworth Park


DAY 2 - COWORTH PARK

A hearty English breakfast awaits you in the morning. Today is completely at your leisure to be as active or relaxed as you wish.


Outdoor enthusiasts can find plenty to do - there are rambling trails that cover the 240-acre grounds, the on-site equestrian centre gives lesson in riding, Guards Polo Academy at Coworth Park gives polo lessons, and tennis, fishing, shooting, and croquet can all be arranged. Golfers might be interested in teeing up at The Wentworth Club, and the historic royal hunting ground of Windsor Great Park is within walking distance. At Runnymede, the Royal Air Force Memorial is serene, beautiful and poignant, with impressive views of the Thames. The UK's most famous racecourse, Ascot, is a mere 10-minute drive away.


Both lunch and dinner today are on your own account. The UK's foodiest village, Bray, is about 25-minutes away and offers everything from Michelin-starred fine dining to gourmet gastropub fare.
