    After breakfast, begin to head south, visiting one of England’s most iconic monuments, Stonehenge. Built in three stages from approximately 3000 BC, Stonehenge is Europe’s most famous Stone Age monument and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The alignment of the stones leaves little doubt that the circle is connected with the sun and passing seasons; the mystery, however, is how it was actually built, as it appears that these 40-ton stones were dragged from over 280 miles away in Wales. Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant in Salisbury before continuing on to the cruise terminal in Southampton where you’ll board your Azamara cruise.
