3 Days in Salisbury for Stonehenge

A friend and I traveled about two hours south of London to the town of Salisbury, which is the town closest to Stonehenge. We stayed in the cute little town for about 3 days and got to see a city full of beauty and history!

Stonehenge itself was beautiful and, although smaller in person, sits perfectly between the rolling green hills of the English countryside. Archaeologist believe that the stones were constructed between 3000 and 2000 BC and must have been very important to the prehistoric peoples because of the many graves that are under and around the monument. However, the real reason behind exactly why and how it was built is still a mystery.

The Town of Salisbury

Salisbury, England, UK

The city of Salisbury, which is the town closest to Stonehenge, is one of the oldest settlements in England and even human history. The city seems to have taken root sometime between 600 and 300 BC, but there is evidence of human activity dating back to the Neolithic period that 'the Stones' were erected in. It was very surreal for the both of us to be walking and traveling through a land with so much history behind it.
