Wiltshire is a fairly large county situated in southwest England. Most of it is home to beautiful countryside and pretty villages, though you also have the large urban town of Swindon and the town of Salisbury – home to what American writer Bill Bryson calls ‘the most beautiful building in England’. Salisbury cathedral has a gorgeous spire and amazing natural light, and also houses one of the copies of the Magna Carta.
Also in this county we find Stonehenge, believed to be a monument to do with ancient burial rites. No-one is sure how they got there, but experts believe they were possibly shipped here when the area used to have more water. Although it’s now used mainly to celebrate the summer solstice on 21 June (the longest day of the year), many so-called ‘hippy types’ are not that earth-friendly, as the council has banned many of them visiting, due to leaving so much litter behind.
