Great places to have a picnic with family and friends Parking can be a problem if you have someone who can not walk far
If you are visiting Salisbury Cathedral, spend some time wandering around here.

I lived in the Close as a child 50 years ago and still remember who lived in each house. Visiting today is still a pleasure.

I loved the old buildings, there is a quiet calm amongst these buildings even though they are quite close to the centre. The place has been preserved for hundreds of years and is simply beautiful.
