Salisbury is a magnificent medieval city: historic streets and alleyways, charming half-timbered buildings, traditional English eating houses and characterful shopping streets, and of cause one of Britain’s finest medieval cathedrals. Salisbury Cathedral has the tallest spire in Britain and Europe's oldest working clock to the world's best-preserved Magna Carta. It stands in the largest medieval close in Britain, where there's also some fascinating museums and historic houses.
Salisbury is the first stop on a day trip from London when going to Stonehenge, via the train system. The easiest way to get to Stonehenge is to take a tour bus from Salisbury via Amesbury. Stonehenge is just outside of Amesbury.
