What to do in Salisbury
As the home of one of the original copiers of the famed Magna Carta, the ‘Great Charter’ of medieval England, Salisbury has strong links to the history of the country as a whole.
However, that doesn’t mean it is empty of modern attractions – with a bustling local market and vibrant art scene, there’s plenty to enjoy in Salisbury.
If you are interested in taking a closer look at the Magna Carta and enjoying some beautiful early Gothic architecture, head to the Salisbury Cathedral. As well as this historic document, the cathedral itself boasts the tallest spire in England and daily services sung by angelic choristers.
They say that every road leading into Salisbury offers a perfect view of the 400 foot spire the tallest in Europe. Building of the cathedral commenced in 1220 and completed in 1258. 70 years later the spire was added. One slightly startling but amazing fact is that despite being built on essentially a flood plain it’s foundations are just a little over 4 feet deep! Once you have seen the size of this building you’ll understand how well it must have been constructed.
Salisbury’s Cathedral Close is also home to Arundells, the home of Britain’s former Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath. You can see his collection of paintings, ceramics, sailing and musical memorabilia and much more.
There are a few great museums to check out here too, from the Rifles Military Museum to the Salisbury & South Wiltshire Museum, which has an award-winning Stonehenge Gallery.
For the shopping enthusiasts, a visit to the Charter Market is a must. This twice-weekly event is held on Tuesdays and Saturdays, aside from the third Tuesday in October. Here you’ll find stalls with fresh fruit and produce, clothing, knick-knacks and much more.
There are also several shopping malls and independent shops to peruse if you feel like treating yourself to a bit of retail therapy.
Of course, no visit to Salisbury would be complete without an excursion to Stonehenge, located just out of Salisbury. This mysterious stone circle has perplexed visitors for centuries, and it’s well worth a visit to experience it for yourself with a recently completed new visitor centre.
