Salisbury : Michelin's recommendations
Mention cannot be made of Salisbury without reference to its cathedral, perhaps the most sublime in England. Equally charming is the medieval town itself, which retains its small-scale character and merits exploration, before venturing further afield into a surrounding landscape which is verdant, undulating and dotted with villages of cottages in flower-decked gardens. Also in the vicinity is the prehistoric site of Stonehenge, without question Britain’s most renowned ancient monument.
