A Favourite Car Journey From London To Stonehenge.
Having lived in Wiltshire and worked in London I was frequently asked about how to make a day of driving to Stonehenge. I have driven this route many times and I hope you enjoy It!
The first part is not at all picturesque but a means of departing London. Take the Main M4 out of London and follow this to Junction 14 the turning for Hungerford.
The moment you do this the English country side is around you. Follow the road A336 to the T junction, turning left on to the main A4. In just a few minutes you can see the signs to Hungerford the first stop on our journey you will find a car park on the high Street . Video http://www.hungerford.uk.net/video.php
Returning back to the A4 or Bath Road turn left in following signs to Froxfield http://www.froxfield.org/ Passing this village we open out onto some truly beautiful rural country side including the Savernake forest, just keep following the signs to Marlborough is a direct route with a straight Road. Please stop as you wish this is only a guideline.
An alternative would be to return to the A4 for a short Journey to Cherhill where the Black Horse pub can be found on the right hand side. Opposite the Pub are Landmarks of the Landsdown monument and White Horse. I can highly recommend http://www.theblackhorsecherhill.co.uk/
Take the A4 back to Beckhampton and follow the Route to Devizes, then Pottern Road
A360 continue on this road through west Lavington, Shewton Maddington Street Leading on to Amesbury Road (Still A360)
At the Junction of A360 And B3086 follow the A344.
Stonehenge will be found about 1.5 miles on your Right.
