      3. London Sightseeing and Free Time

      Journey to 18th-century London on a Small Group Sightseeing guided visit to John Wesley's elegant Georgian home which he built himself in the 18th century. Here you'll learn about the history of the Methodist faith and see where preachers, their families and servants once sought refuge. Spend the morning learning about his life as the leader of the protestant movement and visit his prayer room and grave. This afternoon you'll have time to explore London on your own.

      4. Stonehenge and Salisbury Excursion

      We make our way to the ancient circle at Stonehenge, the best-known prehistoric monument in Europe and site where pagans once worshipped. See how the sarsens and bluestones are arranged curiously in a concentric pattern - its mysteries and purpose still undiscovered in modern times. Leaving the monoliths behind, we continue to Salisbury where we'll join a Chaplain for a guided tour of the medieval masterpiece that is Salisbury Cathedral. Delve into over seven centuries of spiritual devotion as you explore its Gothic façades then spend a quiet moment in prayer. You'll have an opportunity to see the 13th-century Magna Carta, which inspired movements for freedom in Britain and around the world.

Learn all about its history and how it came to be dedicated to Paul the Apostle. You'll have the rest of the day to explore more of London on your terms. Consider a visit to Westminster Cathedral, the largest Catholic Church in London, or the Victoria and Albert Museum, which offers a wide and varied collection of Christian objects, dating from the middle ages to today.
