Salisbury
Salisbury is an ideal day trip for any tourist with plenty of history and architecture to be explored. The area also encompasses one of the most famous landmarks in the world; Stonehenge.

Stonehenge  is a prehistoric monument located in the English county of Wiltshire. It is composed of earthworks surrounding a circular setting of large standing stones. It is at the centre of the most dense complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in England, including several hundred burial mounds.

Other notable attractions are a visit to the cathedral. Built between 1220 and 1258, the cathedral boasts the tallest spire in Britain, which rises elegantly above the sweeping lawns of the tranquil cathedral close. Within the close, you can enjoy award-winning museums and graceful period homes as you wander peacefully around the relaxed setting.

For the culturally minded, there's the annual Salisbury Festival and entertainment is always on offer at the Salisbury playhouse, city hall and arts centre.
