Places to stay in Salisbury

While it's perhaps best-known for its stunning cathedral and proximity to Stonehenge, Britain's most famous ancient monument, Salisbury also has a long and interesting history, regular farmer's markets and expansive public parks, and retains an old-world charm in a modern city.

Sitting on the confluence of five rivers, Salisbury has been an important trading centre for many centuries, with an abundance of listed buildings and fascinating museums that tell the city's story. The charming Wiltshire countryside is all around too, so you'll never be stuck for something to do - whether it's shopping, exploring the natural world or stepping into the past.

Five Free Things To Do In Salisbury

Woodhenge
If you've already seen Stonehenge, why not check out its equally mysterious cousin just a couple of miles away? The arrangement of posts, dating to 2300 BC, is believed to have once served as a burial ground.

Downton Moot
These ornamental gardens, built on the ruins of a 12th century earthwork castle, make a beautiful place to visit at any time of the year.

Salisbury Cathedral
One of Britain's finest mediaeval cathedrals, this building was constructed in the early English Gothic style in the 13th century. It's particularly well known for its impressive 123-metre spire.

Fovant Badges
This series of giant regimental badges cut into the Wiltshire hills and filled with chalk are astonishing monuments to the soldiers who lost their lives in the First World War.

Langford Lakes
The perfect place for a day's bird-watching, the lakes are home to tufted ducks, pochard, great crested grebes and kingfishers, as well as dragonflies and butterflies in the summer months.
