Salisbury to the east, offers many attractions: the cathedral with its impressive spire and surroundings, museums, a traditional market (Tuesdays and Saturdays) in the market square, theatre, a variety of restaurants, shopping and guided tours, or perhaps a day or evening at the races.


8 miles to the north of Salisbury is Stonehenge; an ancient prehistoric monument and World Heritage Site. It consists of a ring of massive standing stones surrounded by a circular earth bank and ditch. Archaeologists believe it was constructed from 3000 BC to 2000 BC.
