Salisbury Visitor Guide
A walk around Salisbury's medieval streets is a must to experience the city's history and heritage.
Dominated by its 123 metre spire, Salisbury Cathedral can be seen for miles around. Climb the 332 steps of the Cathedral Tower to admire the views and maybe see the resident peregrine falcons. Back at ground level, visit inside the Cathedral and take a look at the AD1215 Magna Carta document, one of only 4 in the world. In Cathedral Close, don’t miss Arundells, home of former Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath or the Grade I Listed Mompesson House which showcases Queen Anne style architecture and holds an extensive collection of 18th century tableware and furnishings.
Visit the Salisbury Museum for a look at archaeological finds and information on the ancient city. Check out the museum's Wessex Gallery for items from Stonehenge.
A stone's throw from the city, visit Boscombe Down Aviation Collection and the Iron Age Hill fort of Old Sarum.
World Heritage Site Stonehenge is a must see before you leave the area!
