Salisbury

Travel Guide
Salisbury Cathedral which includes heritage architecture and tranquil scenes

Walk around the legendary rocks of Stonehenge and other prehistoric relics and hike through Wiltshire’s lush green countryside.

The River Avon runs through Salisbury, an old-world city known for its iconic Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments. A majestic cathedral of Early English design stands in its center near charming landmarks. Learn about human settlements from more than 2,000 years ago as you explore the historic sites.

Head north to one of the world’s best-known archeological spots, Stonehenge. Marvel at the ring of large standing stones set in place between 2,000 and 3,000 years ago. Learn about the surrounding trench, which dates even earlier. Many theories surround the meaning of the stones; however, it was most likely a burial ground.

Walk 2 miles (3 kilometers) east across nature paths to discover Woodhenge, the lesser-known site. Concrete blocks now represent the wooden frames that once held together a circular structure. Look for the subtle remnants of the ditch that surrounded oval-shaped rings.

On your return to the city, stop at the hilltop monument of Old Sarum to see its Norman castle. Cross a bridge over two former moats to reach the castle’s ruined wall. Observe the layout of the former cathedral.

Back in the city center, visit the Salisbury Cathedral. Here find possibly the world’s oldest working clock and one of only four preserved copies of England’s Magna Carta. Gaze up at the country’s tallest church spire and take the tower tour. Prehistoric relics from the region are housed in the Salisbury Museum in the stately mansion.

The city is among the brightest parts of England, with particularly sunny and warm weather in July. Winters are fairly cold and wet.

Salisbury is the only city in the rural county of Wiltshire. It is next to the Salisbury Plain, a region of chalky terrain in the southeastern part of the county. Regular trains depart London to arrive in the charming city in 90 minutes. It takes about 1 hour longer to drive the 88-mile (142-kilometer) journey southwest from the capital.

Travel back to prehistory in the pleasant green fields and hills of Salisbury.
