Stonehenge, Stourhead, Salisbury

I enjoyed visiting Stonehenge, Stourhead, and Salisbury today! I thought it was a good thing to do in the middle of the week because it gave us a chance to rest on the bus and venture outside the busy city of London. I expected Stonehenge to be bigger than it actually was, but I am still glad that we got to visit it. I had been wanted to go there since I was a little kid. I remember a television show about it when I was younger and it always stood out to me. It’s also cool to look back to when I applied to this trip because Stonehenge was a place I wanted to go when I wrote my personal statement many months ago. I Liked visiting Stourhead too. It’s nice to walk around nature (even though it was man-made nature). I liked see gall the flowers ands how the spaces interacted with each other. I wish we would’ve got to explore Salisbury more because the town seemed interesting. I like old, cute little towns like Salisbury, and I hope to help plan for one some day. I thought the Cathedral was beautiful and I liked visiting the top to look over the town. Overall, it was a great day filled with “S” towns!

  1. This may have been one of my favorite days of this trip. I was surprised by the size of the stones at Stonehenge and thought they weren’t as large as I had imagined they would be, but they were astounding anyways. The hike to the top of Salisbury was scarier than the trip to the top of St. Paul’s. Although it wasn’t as high in elevation, the stairs were at some points wobbly and the fact that some of the timbers date to the 1600s does not help.
