The architecture in any cathedral always amazes me, but this cathedral seemed particularly breathtaking. Established in 1220, it has the tallest spire of an English cathedral and contains the best preserved of the four surviving copies of the Magna Carta, which is the basis for constitutional rule. It appeared to be in better shape than some of my fifth graders' work!
We also visited Stonehenge, which is just a few miles away. I didn't think looking at a bunch of rocks would thrill me (sorry history buffs), but I must tell you how totally amazed I was at the site as it appeared on the horizon when we were arriving. The purpose of the formation remains a mystery, as well as how men were able to get these 25 ton rocks into position.
