Yesterday , we hopped on to a train and headed to Wiltshire.
Salisbury, to be exact!
And what a lovely city it is!
Having what I think is the most beautiful cathedral in the country,
Salisbury has so much to offer in terms of character and history.
In fact, Salisbury Cathedral was out first stop as we took a badly needed
late elevenses in the cathedral refectory, before setting off to explore.
We also returned to the cathedral later in the day .
As I stood outside, I could hear the choir.
It was simply beautiful; the perfect sound.
Salisbury Cathedral houses a copy of the famous Magna Carta.
(which was all double dutch to me!!)
No photos allowed in this part of Salisbury Cathedral.
( But a very discreet iphone does help at times!)
In simple terms :
In addition to The Magna Carta, what really caught my eye
was this beautiful selection of cushions.
Sadly no 'Sally of Teigngrace'!
Although... I spotted a Nicholas!
Walking into the city we passed a few interesting
And very nice shop..Chas Baker.
This was my 'window of the day'!
The city was heaving... but seems to cater well for one's appetite!
Mr S waited patiently as I perused the information centre.
Lo and behold, whilst browsing, I was pleased to encounter Nicky's
(The Vintage Magpie) bunnies !
Nice to see Devon making its presence felt in Wiltshire!
Our time in Salisbury was over all too quickly!
Back on the train, we were very tired... but very happy!
