DONALD Trump has backed two Russian tourists who visited Salisbury last March to marvel at the city’s 13th Century cathedral.
The US president said Salisbury was the best cathedral he has ever visited – and the fact that it was so close to Stonehenge made the trip a ‘no-brainer’ for anyone who is passionate about ecclesiastical architecture.
He added: “And early March is absolutely the best time to see it. That’s when Salisbury – and Wiltshire generally – are at their most inviting.”
Trump also recommended the nine mile walk from Salisbury to Stonehenge, but not if the ground under foot was ‘slushy’.
He said: “You might fall over and break a small bottle of perfume in your rucksack. So best to just visit the cathedral and then head straight back to the airport.
“That said, Longleat Safari Park is also worth a visit if you have time.”
