After a short bus ride into the town of Salisbury, we explored the medieval complex of the Salisbury Cathedral featuring the tallest church spire in the UK, the world’s oldest working mechanical clock, and the best preserved original copy of the Magna Carta. The cathedral was incredibly large and beautiful. It had amazing stained glass windows and a large inner courtyard with massive trees. It was a great last stop for our trip.
We had a late lunch at a local pub in Salisbury before making the trek back to London. Melissa and Rachel G decided to take full advantage of their last night near the West End in London and went to see The Lion King, whilst the rest of us decided to go out together for one last round of fish and chips.

Salisbury Cathedral features the UK’s tallest church spire, which is so heavy the supporting pillars can be seen bending inward under the weight.
