In October last year while hosting the last of my friends from home I suggested a day trip so they could get a feel of what it is like outside of London. The plan – drive out to Stonehenge then on to Bath.
We had the best of intentions but our plan was doomed from the start. Our problem started with failing to reserve our hire car early enough. Which meant we got on the road late and thus made it to Stonehenge late, 4:00 pm on the dot, just as the gates closed. Rather than drive further out to Bath we back tracked and went to explore Salisbury.
After the disappointment of not getting in to have a closer look at Stonehenge and listen to the audio tour the sight of the Cathedral almost made up for it all.
The setting sun provided for gorgeous colouring of the church captured below, beautifully displaying the details.
Entrance is free but if you want to delve deeper there are tours available. They even own one of the four original copies of the Magna Carta which unfortunately we did not see as the section housing it was closed. An excuse to return.
