Stonehenge is a well-known prehistoric monument in Europe. Our participants had the opportunity have a tour around the grounds of Stonehenge as well as being able to visit the Cathedral in Salisbury to admire the remarkable building and the practical skills of the medieval craftsmen.
We asked a few students about their favourite parts of the day and here’s what they had to say:
“It’s such a peaceful place, and when I look at it I feel connected with nature. It’s also an incredibly important part of the history of London, of course so is the Salisbury Cathedral which was also beautiful”. Daniela Ocampo Ortega. Mexico
Visiting Salisbury Cathedral:
“I love all things related to art and architecture and so I really loved the Cathedral. The details in the walls are so incredible – it leaves me speechless.” Alejandra Rangel. Mexico
LIYSF participants enjoyed their time on the trip and learnt a lot during this optional visit. It was a time to absorb what the beautiful British landscapes have to offer, and was an opportunity for our participants to venture outside of London. It was an enjoyable day for all students!
