TravelPod Member ReviewsBEST WESTERN Red Lion Hotel Salisbury
Apparently this is one of the oldest hotels in England. With all the conveniences of the 21st Century this is a wonderful place to stay. The staff was very helpful and very friendly, and the grounds were simply charming. I would definitely stay here if I were ever to be back in Salisbury, and definitely recommend it to friends.

Inside the visitor center are artifacts recovered from Stone Henge and the surrounding area. Bone implements. Stone oil lamps. Small charms and beads and ornaments whittled from antler and chalk. Arrowheads ...
... worship is still in practice. He said, "It's obvious: stone for the dead ancestors, wood for the living people." And there are far more food and human remains around Woodhenge than Stonehenge, for example. Apparently there are also many stone circles all around the British Isles, but none with shaped stones, like Stonehenge, or with lintels like Stonehenge, or so closely structured.
Things have certainly changed since I was here in 1984. In those ...

Moving on from Stonehenge, we set off for the beautiful city of Bath, another ancient Roman city with more history and more stories that I'll ever have hot dinners. It's a very picturesque town, with buildings built on the sides of the hills that surround the city centre that sits in the valley, it's a beautiful sight as you drive down into the ...
