Our last day in London we took a trip to Salisbury and Amesbury.


 When approaching town you can quickly see the magnificent spire of the cathedral.  We first took  a little stroll around town and had lunch and then walked to the church.





Salisbury Cathedral

 Built in the medieval times, it is a great example of early English architecture. The original building dates back to 1220.

Its formal name is the Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary and is an Anglican cathedral. And its main claim to fame is that it has one of the four original copies of the Magna Carta.  Seeing it with my own eyes was an incredible experience. I was so moved seeing this amazing document that it took Stephan four rounds of in an out of the Chapter House to get me out.




The Cloister is the largest in any British Cathedral.

We then went to Amesbury to visit Stonehenge.
