A monument in Salisbury
9:20 AM we were already walking in Salisbury,
that includes the underground ride to the station,
waiting for the train and the two hours ride to Salisbury

To be sincere, we did not plan to visit Salisbury. According to the tourist booklet, this is where we had to go to visit Stonehenge. This was the reason why we went.

We started very early that morning, on the 5:00 AM underground train in London, and arrived at Salisbury an hour before the bus service to Stonehenge started. All rested up we decided to stretch our legs instead of staying at the train station waiting for the bus. Counting on English punctuality we allocated half an hour to go and half an hour to return. We should have assigned at least half a day each way, and that would be just to start.

It is our understanding that four rivers meet or go by Salisbury

This is what we find incredible about England, and probably the entire United Kingdom. The buildings and the history that goes along, the views of the town, the Cathedral and so much more would make Salisbury a major tourist destination anywhere in the world. But had it not been for Stonehenge we would have missed it altogether; we wonder how much more is waiting for our return.

Right back, a fortress we did not get to see.

Leaving the train station we walked for about a block before we came across a road that leads to the center of town a couple of blocks away. Then we turned to another street that had stores on both sides and a block down an arch. Another block and we were in the gardens of the Cathedral. This walk could have been done in half the time it took us, but it was too much to see on those few blocks. Still we miss much, it looks like most of it.

We did not go in the Cathedral. Had we done so, we probably would not have made it to Stonehenge. It is a very large building with very beautiful decoration. Afterwards we have found out it dates back to the XIII century, which is simply amazing.
