Salisbury

As a part of our Stonehenge visit, we stayed in Salisbury since all the hotels in Amesbury were fully booked. Salisbury is a nice small town that can be visited in one or two hours. So we took the opportunity before we head to Bath.

There is not much to visit – down town and Salisbury Cathedral.

While you are walking around, you can see a Clock Tower which was built in 1892 by  Dr John Roberts that had the tower built as a memorial for his wife, who had died the previous year.

Just in front of this tower, there is also a nice bridge.

Salisbury Streets

As we didn’t have much time, we quickly went to the Salisbury Cathedral which is built in 38 years built (1220 – 1258)  and has the  World’s oldest working clock and the best surviving of the four original copies of the Magna Carta (all four original copies are in England).

On our way to the Salisbury Cathedral

I don’t know why but I always like to visit cathedrals, even if they are small or not important. I definitely like this cathedral a lot. It is a very beautiful gothic cathedral. I have taken many nice pictures of the cathedral and I cannot decide which one to put as I want to put them all :)
