Even if you are not interested in Sir Edward Heath or British Politics go and support this house and garden. It is a beautiful house. The guides make the tour so informative. If you are in Salisbury just go and be enchanted.

On a slightly overcast day I saw Ted Heath's grave in Salisbury Cathedral and one of the guides suggested I go and visit Arundells his house 100 yards across the Close in front of the West Door. The house is beautiful from the front and is matched by a lovely garden which goes down to the fast flowing River Avon.... More

Arundells proved an enjoyable day out last month. Although I didn’t know much about Edward Heath before I visited I was struck by the amount of incredible items he seemed to have accumulated. The gifts from Churchill, Mao and other world leaders were extremely interesting and I particularly enjoyed the ‘Cartoon Corridor’! The tour by Stuart was thoughtful, humorous and... More

This home of former Prime Minister Edward Heath is in Cathedral Close overlooking the beautiful Salisbury Cathedral. The 18th century house has a medieval walled garden running down to the the Avon and Nadder rivers. The guide Stuart worked for Heath and is a wonderful source of stories and anecdotes about the house and its contents. It has been left... More

Entrance to this place is by timed guided tours on the hour and half hour (up to 12 people each I think). So go there early and reserve a slot. Costs £10/person. Lots of interesting things to see in the house and the 2 acre grounds are beautiful.

Wasn't really expecting that much. A grand house set in Salisbury's Cathedral Close and once owned by a politician. Put like that it kind of leaves you cold. But.. .once you've visited you realise it shouldn't really be put like that. It is a grand house. It does have stunning view of the cathedral. It is also full of Edward... More

The sailing memorabilia will interest the sailors, but I was more interested in Ted Heath's extensive collection of objet's d'art, pictures, and originals of cartoons featuring himself. The guide was particularly good.

We called in prompted by some of the reviews on this site. A very informative guide talked us through the history of the building before showing us around inside. I enjoyed learning a little of his yachting exploits, and liked the many nautical paintings. Inside the house is quite cosy, the rooms not too large. I would have liked more... More

It was my partner who wanted to visit Arundells (the home of former premier Edward Heath) having read good things about it. I was expecting it to be a mildly interesting way to pass the time. However it turned out to be something of a highlight to our stay in Salisbury. The huge amount of artefacts, and personal mementoes given... More
