Salisbury Cathedral is one of the most beautiful cathedrals in the world, both inside and out. The cloisters are also beautiful and a nice place to sit and have a snack or beverage from the refectory. The tower tour, which costs another 20 pounds, is worth every pence to go up into the tower of the cathedral. Evensong (a sung... More

It is a lovely quiet place to wonder around in the middle of a bustling city. There are many grand old houses here which are great to look at too. It is a great place in the summer if you buy some sandwiches in town and go and sit on the grass outside the cathedral and eat your picnic. Lots... More

Astoundingly beautiful cathedral and a charming, peaceful walk around its perimeters. Great spot to just stop and admire the scenery.

Take in the atmosphere. imagine the old communities that make up these households. Each building is different and has something to interest. Great place to just wander and look. Get information leaflet about the different buildings to appreciate what there is

the close around the cathedral is a pleasure to walk around, looking at the historic houses. We were there on a Friday and disappointed both Arundells and Mompesson House are closed on Thursdays and Fridays. This is something easy to do if you are staying at the White Hart Hotel. The Close has easy access to the shopping centre.

It is a jewel - a Gothic Cathedral of the 13th century set in the green sward of the Close. A further incentive to visit is that an original copy of the Magna Carta is on view: it has just celebrated its 800th Birthday!

A lovely setting where the Cathedral stands out with a large surround of green area where you can picnic and relax. The Close has beautiful houses some of which are museums to visit some of which you pay to go in but not if you are a National Trust member.

Lovely setting with some beautiful houses around the close. Plenty of space to sit and relax. Nothing to dislike as the area is so nice.
