One of the places to include in your bucket list is Salisbury, the site of the Stonehenge. Built more than 5,000 years ago, this man-made structure is still one of the most famous historical sites in the world and is surrounded by historical fact and burial mounds. This countryside town is a beauty in itself since it is well-preserved. There is also the Salisbury Cathedral built in 1238 which remains to be standing. Although a day trip will get you around the town, lingering for a night or two is much better.
