Places to stay in Salisbury

Salisbury is Wiltshire's only city, and it boasts a vast number of historical attractions to discover, as well as connections to many of the surrounding areas of natural beauty. Whether you're taking a romantic break away or simply seeking a convenient base for a walking holiday in the countryside, there's something to attract all ages. Take a tour bus to the magical site of Stonehenge, visit the area's many stately homes, and explore the city centre's shops and boutiques for an unforgettable UK break.

Many tours make their way around the Wiltshire countryside from Salisbury, but if you'd rather go your own way simply head out to one of the many national parks in the area. Footpaths connect straight up to the hotel, allowing you easy access to an afternoon of walking, cycling and even riding. Even Old Sarum, the site of the original city, is less than three miles away.

Five Free Things To Do In Salisbury

Old Sarum
This Iron Age hill fort was once the centre of Salisbury, and today you can still see where the cathedral once stood. Noted for its Roman, Saxon and Norman history, it's a fascinating attraction and an excellent spot for panoramic views.

Salisbury Cathedra
Built in the 11th century, Salisbury Cathedral is worth visiting for the views from the tower alone, but do check out the perfectly landscaped gardens and the original copy of the Magna Carta inside.

While you have to pay to get up close to Stonehenge, its lesser-known neighbour Woodhenge is free of charge. Made up of rings of postholes, an eerie silence and a sense of mystery awaits here.

Downton Moot
Downton Moot is a garden created in the 18th century, raised from the ruins of a 12th century castle. It's a beautifully restored area and the ideal location for a gentle afternoon outdoors.

Salisbury Country Way
Hikers and walkers should head towards the Salisbury Country Way for a trek that takes you around the perimeter of the city, showcasing the different landscapes that surround the area. You'll pass wild downland, ancient woods and timeless valleys - as well as a number of pubs for a quick lunch stop!
