Yesterday, we picked up a rental car in Dover, so today was Steve’s first driving in England. NO problems, just seemed to take an awfully long time! Below is our hotel for the night, Grasmere House Hotel, very nice and great view of Salisbury Cathedral from the back porch.
We then walked into Salisbury to see the Cathedral, see some sights and find some dinner!
The largest thatched house we had ever seen!
Salisbury Cathedral has England’s tallest spire (404 feet) and largest green field (called a “close”) surrounding it. It is quite impressive and was built in only 38 years (1220-1258), considered astonishing for the Middle Ages. We arrived late, so were not able to see the interior.
Great sculptures on the “close”, near the Cathedral!
On to Stonehenge tomorrow!!
