As we saw the Spring weather slowly stepping in, Goldie and I wanted to take full advantage and get out the beautiful English countryside. We had been told Bath was a MUST see in England, so we planned a trip westward with stops at a few of the iconic destinations along the way. Here is the journey we decided to take and a little more direct path back to London.
Salisbury Cathedral is nestled in the quaint English town of Salisbury with a full array of walkable shops, pubs and diners. From a couple miles out you can see the peak of the cathedral towering above the small town. This amazing structure was MUCH larger than we anticipated and easily rivals Westminster Abbey in it’s grandeur and only a couple hundred years younger.
Not sure where we received this impression, but neither of us knew how close and accessible Stone Henge was from London. If you are venturing out of London for even a day, this is world treasure such a beautiful drive as well.
While we traveled, we wanted to grab a bite on the road and pick up some items for a picnic in Bath. White Row Farms is officially our favorite fish & chips we found on our trip and their baked mac and cheese was to die for. Absolutely worth the stop and such a fun place to wander around a bit.
Bath is noted one of the most beautiful cities in England and it definitely lived up to its reputation! Several of the iconic venues in town were still closed due to the the pandemic, but this will be the city we come back for their Christmas season lighting and festivities.
As you head back into London, you will be passing directly by the amazing Windsor Castle. This is a must experience to round out your countryside trek with numerous historic structures on the grounds and an Instagram dream!
