Join 4×4 Adventure Tours on Salisbury Plain – the mecca for 4×4 enthusiasts – on 17 November 2019.

Set in the heart of Wiltshire and adjacent to the Stonehenge World Heritage site, the plain is the largest military training ground in the UK and is crisscrossed by numerous green lanes.

This classic but challenging route circles the plain, taking in many of the sights including bombed-out tanks and the German Village training area (as featured on Top Gear) and passes close to Stonehenge. The route also allows for some great views across the plain, a unique landscape in southern England.

The lanes are varied in type from gravel tracks and muddy lanes to open grassland with plenty of options available. We also have a backup route should military red flags be flying on the day to avoid disappointment.

Why use 4×4 Adventure Tours to explore Salisbury Plain?

Given the nature of the military training ground, which is carefully watched over by range marshals, it is very important to ensure you stay on the legal right of way. Serious consequences exist for drivers and vehicles going off-piste, not least from unexploded munitions.

The plain can be very confusing for the unwary with a myriad of tracks made by military vehicles. Route finding can be somewhat difficult without prior knowledge and GPS. Taking a tour with 4×4 Adventures Tours ensure you will see the best the plain has to offer while staying safe and legal.

This route is suitable for newer vehicles due to the openness of many of the tracks and the lack of hedgerows in many areas.

Please see FAQ for full details of vehicle suitability.

I think I’ve been on this tour with Tom four or five times now and it doesn’t get repetitive. Its not scratchy and Tom’s experience means there are alternative routes to get around any closures due to live firing exercises, etc., Lots of interesting stuff to see and it is sometimes possible to get closer to Stonehenge than it is possible to do as a visitor/tourist.
