What an amazing place to visit. Part of our history in an awesome setting. This house has some of the most amazing artwork. Worth visiting
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
I loved the look of Edward Heath's former home, and enjoyed the wonderful garden. Inside, I felt less happy. Heath's personal taste was reflected in his collections of sailing memorabilia, porcelain and pictures. His grand piano was covered with photographs of the world leaders. The guide was excellent, recalling his days as one of Heath's security officers with great affection.... More
We live in Salisbury and thought we would pay a visit to Sir Edward Heath's home Arundells in The Cathedral Close. It was truly a hidden gem of a place.

Arundells is full of the personal artefacts collected by a British Prime Minister who enjoyed diverse talents of politics, sailing and music. This is a face of modern British history that comes to life with the wonderful guides who show you around Arundells. Don't miss it.
A lovely house in its own right, the Edward Heath connection makes it that more worthwhile. Especially interesting in that it is not a National Trust or Country House but a personal residence and furnished accordingly ..We also were a bit hesitant at first but are very glad we visited. I took the Sunday £7 unescorted view and as everyone... More
There is no signage for Arundells and if you're on your way to the wonderful Cathedral, you may well miss it. This is the house that Sir Edward Heath, British Prime Minister who, having witnessed and fought in the horrors of the Second World War vowed he would do whatever he could to prevent a Third - and consequently did...

We were a bit hesitant about paying the £7 entry fee, but are glad that we did. The house is very interesting because it has been left exactly as it was. I was even able to play a few bars of music on Heath's Steinway piano. The informative and pleasant guides really make the visit worthwhile. They are obviously passionate... More
