It says: ‘2015 is set to be the year visitors linger in this quintessentially English city as Salisbury uncorks the champagne for the 800th anniversary of its greatest treasure, Magna Carta. The lightning rod for the celebrations will be Salisbury Cathedral, the medieval masterpiece whose Chapter House holds Magna Carta.'
'The cathedral itself boasts a clutch of superlatives, with the tallest spire in Britain, the world's oldest working clock and Britain's largest cloister.'
I've been there. My husband and I gaped in wonder at the cathedral, and roamed the picturesque town, which is well set out with information readily available at the central tourist center.

I stayed in Singapore for one month in the early eighties when I traveled as a nanny. I've also seen St. Lucia, one of the most beautiful places on Earth, in 2002 when my husband and I cruised around the Caribbean. He recovered from an operation yesterday. Before he left, he told me a nurse advised him to think of somewhere he loved before he went to sleep. When I asked him about his choice, he named the bay in St. Lucia.
How many of the named places have you seen?
