Now and then, I’ve a feeling when I really need to leave London, its hectic life and just explore a beauty of England. One of those places is Stonehenge.
To drive to Stonehenge from London will take you about 2 hours. If you don’t have a car, you can take a bus/train to the nearest city Salisbury and from there take a special bus to Stonehenge.
My expectations of Stonehenge were really high as I’ve seen lots of beautiful photos and countless selfies of people posing there. So when we were driving around the hill where Stonehenge is, I’m not going to lie that I was slightly disappointed as it was not that big as I thought. Our thoughts actually were ”A couple of stones in the middle of nowhere”.
Don’t worry. It has its own magic and I am sure you’ll enjoy it there. I’m not sure what the weather is like during spring/summer/autumn time as I went there in the end of January. Luckily, we had lots of sun on that day without any rain, but it was so cold there and windy.
Once you arrive there, you’ll have a look around a replica of neolithic village. After that you can walk to Stonehenge or take a bus.
Near to Stonehenge is a little town Salisbury. If you’ll be around and have a time, what I’d recommend to visit is a Salisbury Cathedral. Don’t miss an exhibition of Magna Carta there. It’s a symbol of justice, fairness and human rights. Only 4 copies of Magna Carta from 1215 have survived and Salisbury Cathedral is proud to have one of those copies.
Have you visited Stonehenge and Salisbury? Did you enjoy your trip? What are other places you’d recommend to visit. Doesn’t have to be only in England 🙂
