DESTINATION INFO:Stonehenge is one of the oldest prehistoric sites in Europe and is also a UN World Heritage Site. It’s the remains of a ring of giant standing stones set within earthworks, constructed from 3000 BC to 2000 BC. Salisbury has been an important provincial city for more than a thousand years, and its streets form an architectural timeline ranging from medieval walls and half-timbered Tudor town houses to Georgian mansions and Victorian villas. Salisbury is dominated by its majestic 800-year-old cathedral that’s topped by the tallest spire in England. The cathedral is home to one of the most important documents in the world, the Magna Carta, which for the first time gave all ‘free men’ the right to justice and a fair trial, and created the very idea of human rights. “No man shall be arrested or imprisoned except by the judgment of their equals and by the law of the land. To no one will we sell, to no one deny or delay right or justice.”
