Salisbury is a cathedral city located in the county of Wiltshire and lies at the edge of Salisbury Plain. The city also lies on the confluence of five rivers: the Nadder, Ebble, Wylye, the Bourne and a tributary of the River Avon. Salisbury cathedral is formally known as the Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary, is one of the leading examples of Early English architecture. The main part of the cathedral was completed between 1220 and 1258. The cathedral's spire is the tallest in the UK and 123m. Visitors are able to take the "Tower Tour" where the interior of the spire can be viewed. The cathedral also has the largest cloister and the largest cathedral close in Britain. It also houses the world's oldest working clock, from AD 1386.
The UNESCO World Heritage Site, Stonehenge, is just under 10 miles from Salisbury which attracts many visitors to Salisbury. The Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum is located in the King's House which is a Grade I listed building dating back to the 13th century. The Pitt Rivers gallery contains a collection from General Augustus Pitt Rivers who is often regarded as the "father of modern archeology".
London has too many buildings to be characterised by one architectural style. This is due, in part, to the varying ages of its buildings with dating back as far as the 11th century, such as The Tower of London. Many of London's large, opulent, houses and public buildings, such as the National Gallery, were constructed using Portland stone. However, different parts of the city have styles of their own. For example, the area to the west of central London is characterised by white stucco buildings. Although some do exist, few of London's surviving buildings pre-date the Great Fire of 1666. Those that do may have a trace of Roman remains or are of Tudor origins.
London is also a very green city with many parks and open spaces for inhabitants and visitors to enjoy. In central London there are a number of Royal Parks: Hyde Park and its neighbour Kensington Gardens, Regent's Park which is home to London Zoo, Green Park and St James's Park. Further out from the centre there is Greenwich Park, Bushey Park, Richmond Park and Victoria Park. Primrose Hill and Hampstead Heath to the north of Regent's Park are popular spots to view the ever changing London skyline.
