I will be bringing my 3 YO on a trip to Salisbury (1 night, 1.5 days). We're hoping to make a trip to Bath in the morning via train, and a trip to Stonehenge in the afternoon when we meet up with the rest of our party in Salisbury. I have a couple of questions. First, is Stonehenge okay for a mild-mannered 3 YO? We won't be spending hours there, but I anticipate he may be tired and a bit cranky from the time change.
Second, what accommodations on the coach are there for children of this age? We are taking the National Express from Heathrow to Woking and have been told that we can use the boosters provided on board, to be able to use the required seatbelts for the 3 YO. Is there such a thing on the coach to Stonehenge? Do these buses have seatbelts and boosters for little ones, or is it like buses in the US where there are no seat belts? It is unsafe to hold a child under your own seat belt like some people do, and we wouldn't be bringing a car seat for this trip, as we won't need it any other place (also, what would we do with it while we're visiting Stonehenge, anyway?). Normally he is in a convertible at home (rear-facing, even), but he's also tall (probably close to 38"/96 cm). I realize the odds of something happening on this short trip are very low, and that I may be overthinking this, but I want to be as safe as we can within reason, as well as follow the law in the area (which I believe requires seat belt use?).
Thank you for any assistance you can provide. I have attempted to both call the company who provides the Stonehenge tour from Salisbury (can't make toll calls from my US cell phone) and email them (they haven't responded to my email inquiries).
