Edward Heath's home, not many rooms available to view, for the price - £10 per adult. Gardens are delightful. Don't take children, it's quite a tights squeeze at times in the house when busy.

I have now been fortunate enough to have visited this delightful property which was the former home of the now deceased former Prime Minister Ted Heath. Arundells is simply beautiful and set in the beautiful The Close, a stone's throw from Salisbury Cathedral..in fact just cross the green and you are at the cathedral. How Ted Heath must have loved...

Limited numbers able to book on each guided tour so everyone could hear the tour guide speak. Where space was tight two guides took part of the group to separate areas which meant a more intimate look at what we were being shown. Loved the fabulous Chinese wallpaper on the hallway/staircase and the collection of cartoons. Sadly no-one in our... More

Booked on tour online which was very easy to do. I was taking my elderly parents because I thought they would like it. The guides are very knowledgeable about both Ted Heath and the history of the house. The highlight for me was just getting a feel for the various rooms (you can actually sit on the chairs, unlike most... More

We were recommended to book for a tour and did so even though we thought it would be low on our list. The staff/volunteers are all excellent and helpful. The gardens are really lovely and with autumn colours and Salisbury Cathedral as a backdrop, absolutely stunning. The guided tour was one of the best I have been on and the... More

A nice lived-in house and personal tour. Lots of nice things. Whilst, in retrospect, one might question his politics, one can only admire his house and garden. Well worth a visit.

Beautiful house in a stunning location. Just as the previous occupant left it so a picture of his well rounded life. Being a former PM's house left untouched its pretty unique.(if you didn't like Ted Heath don't let that stop you going, it is wonderful and a great tour conducted by knowledgeable guides. A must if you are in Salisbury.

an excellent surprise! A fascinating house, knowledgeable guides and the opportunity to get close to photos and other items. A wonderful collection of photos, paintings, cartoons and private treasures. The house has a lovely intimate feel. The gardens are delightful. a real hidden secret in Salisbury.

After checking out this property on Trip Advisor and finding time on my hands after touring the cathedral, I stopped in. Along with a charming couple (coincidentally named Heath), Stuart conducted us on an hour-plus tour of the home of former Prime Minister Edward Heath, left almost exactly as at Heath's death. It is not a museum, but a private... More

This is an extremely interesting property to visit (regardless of your political persuasion) with very knowledgeable guides. You are taken round the house in small groups on a guided tour and for our visit we had a different guide for each room. The property has a 'lived in' feel which makes it all the more attractive and we were encouraged... More
