After meeting your guide you immediately depart for Salisbury, the historic city and market town that grew up around the cathedral. Salisbury dates back to 1220 when the hill top settlement of Old Sarum moved to this location.
Upon arrival, you enjoy a walking tour of the city which developed on a plan of becoming a market town. Different areas were dedicated to different trades, such as Fish Row, Butcher Row and Poultry Cross. Today you will still see many charming timber framed houses in the area, which sits under the shadow of the famous Salisbury Cathedral.
After free time for lunch (meal not included) you will visit the famous cathedral.
Built in just 38 years, from 1220 to 1258 AD, the Salisbury Cathedral is a magnificent example of early English Gothic architecture surrounded by 8 acres of lawn and Britain's largest medieval Close. Fascinating treasures include the best preserved copy of only four surviving Magna Carta which forms the basis of the American constitution. Salisbury Cathedral has Britain's tallest spire, at 404 feet, and Europe's oldest working clock, dating back to 1386 AD.
