Salisbury Plain Experience Off-Road Tour
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Pass By: Salisbury Plain Safaris, The Bustard Inn, Shrewton SP3 4DU England
Beginning from your chosen collection point the group will make its way to Salisbury Plain. Upon joining your tour route (which can change due to military activity) you begin to make your way around a circuit of the military firing range, stopping for photo opportunities and chances to explore the local flora and fauna en route.
Depending on access you will either make our way across the downland taking in Copehill Down military camp or take a trip through the firing ranges themselves and take a look at the craters and shattered hulks that are used for target practice on the plain. During the tour you will take in spectacular views across Pewsey Vale, seeing the White horses at Westbury, Devizes and Alton Barnes before descending from a height of 221m to the valley floor and hearing the story of the Robbers Stone.
A short road journey takes in the villages of Chittern and Tilshead before collecting the tracks again to head across country to Parsonage Down nature reserve. It is here in a secluded little known corner of Wiltshire that you stop for tea and biscuits, listening to the birdsong and perhaps the thrum of an Apache helicopter! You embark once more for a short but very off road trip past Yarnbury Castle (actually an Iron Age hill fort) before returning to your location via Stonehenge and the historic town of Larkhill, birthplace of the RAF and current home to the Royal Artillery.

Tour was very nice, our guide picked us up at the Salisbury Train Station along with two other passengers - contact them directly to arrange this. The ride can be customized - we chose to see great views and more nature than military stuff, and we were happy. Went in beginning of September and had great weather for it. James was very knowledgeable and friendly. The tour end location is a private property, so make sure to have transport arranged for right at the end time of the tour.
