Salisbury and the Magna Carta
Soaring into the skyline, the spire of Salisbury Cathedral stands at a whopping 123m (404ft)! Erected 800 years ago, the revolutionary spire is considered one of the leading examples of Early English architecture. Ancient meets modern at the cathedral's newest addition: a beautifully sculpted font designed by William Pye. Salisbury Cathedral is also home to the world's oldest working clock and the best-preserved of the four remaining original copies of the Magna Carta. Marvel at this astonishing medieval document in the Chapter House with its slender central pillar and stunning medieval frieze
You'll never forget your first glimpse of spectacular Stonehenge, its monolithic rocks rising up against the skyline on Salisbury Plain. Theories abound about the mysterious rock formation. Was it intended as a religious temple? An astronomical clock? A Bronze Age burial ground? Make up your own mind as you explore the unique landmark that has had the world stumped for 5,000 years.
Finally, we visit Old Sarum Castle, one of Britain's earliest settlements and the site of the original city and Cathedral of Old Salisbury. First occupied over 5000 years ago, it has been occupied and defended in turn by the Romans, the Saxons and the Normans. After continued conflict between the castle garrison and the clergy, lack of water supply and general overcrowding, the city as we know today ‘Salisbury’ was formed as an alternative city to Old Sarum. Explore the ruins of this once thriving city in their ancient and beautiful setting, and enjoy spectacular views over the sweeping landscape of Salisbury Plain.
