    Located around 10 miles from Salisbury, Stonehenge is Britain’s most popular and best-known monument dating back to ancient times. The Bronze Age stone circle was placed in that very spot in the period between 3000 and 1500 BC. Scholars believe that the circle served as a type of religious centre used for certain ceremonies.

Each of these cities will grant you a unique insight into medieval architecture, with their guildhalls, churches, and cobbled streets. York is the ideal base for those who enjoy spending part of their holidays in the countryside as it is a convenient gateway to such places as the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors.
