There was very little to see. I know that it wasn't that expensive to get in but basically there was nothing to see.
The ruins are interesting, but the main reason to go there is for the view. You can understand why the Romans and later rulers of the area chose this site. It is an English Heritage site and as such is free to members, has a small gift shop where you can purchase snacks and in the winter sample Mead which... More
Old Sarum nestles to the North of the modern Salisbury. This EH property is open to everyone, with only the inner bastion where you need to pay. The car park and outer bank and ditches are free for people to roam and enjoy. The early cathedral is also on site with the footprint outlined in the grass for visitors. Walk... More
This was a great discovery and well worth the entrance fee. With the fabulous views of the Wiltshire countryside and the chilling wind it was really quite spiritual and a lovely peaceful place to imagine the life back then. Great for a relaxing stroll.
Having expected a hill fort, it was really interesting to find a castle ruin and a fantastic view - on a sunny day this is a lovely place to visit, and the entrance price is cheap!
Cold but very interesting. Car park near the entrance with toilets. Good new shop at entrance. Interesting displays round the castle explaining the history. Great view over Salisbury and the countryside.
After several childhood visits with school, which left vague memories of long walks and boredom, I decided this year was the time to revisit the Castle, and was pleasantly surprised by how interesting the ruins actually are to me as an adult with a vague interest in history. I'm planning to go back next year, a bit better prepared and... More
Visited Old Sarum a few months back when there was another historic event going on depicting what life would have been like during those days. A great family day out and very informative. The sight is really nice to walk around on a day to day basis. Brilliant views of the city as well.
If you only visit one site whilst in Salisbury, visit Old Sarum - this is the Old Salisbury. Lovely views and walks around ths site, with lots to set the imagination alive. Worth reading the book "Sarum" for the story of this aite this site and the history of Salisbury since the Ice Age.
Old Sarum is a wonderful place to go to get away from the crowds and the noise of other sites. We loved the peaceful walk from the street (let off by the Stonehenge bus) up to the site, with sheep grazing all around the path. We loved the beautiful views back to Salisbury. We loved the country quiet after busy,... More
