well I'm counting the green around the Cathedral in with The Close - ok? Last seen at end of September 2015 - blue sky, sunshine, the cathedral resplendent without its customary shroud of scaffolding. Enjoyed the line up of Magna Carta Barons. Everyone happy and relaxed in the late afternoon glow. You have an array of museums, Mompesson House etc.

This green, park like area surrounding the Salisbury Cathedral really makes an impression. Families all around enjoying the day on the lawns. We were lucky to see all the Barons of Salisbury too.

A great place to walk around, especially in autumn when the trees have changed colour. The views of the cathedral are amazing.

An all round visitor experience in a larger than normal close. Something for every one to do, and plenty of opportunity for tea and cakes. Turner Exhibition is a must

The grounds really add to the drama of the Cathedral by setting it apart amongst all the greenery. Great place for contemplation.

A surprisingly large area of greenery remains around the Cathedral. Very pleasant for a saunter and you can continue across the water meadows if you wish. And it's all free!

Went to see the Barons of Salisbury before they go up for auction . A lovely day in the sun . An ideal place for peace and quiet away from the busy town centre

The area surrounding Salisbury Cathedral is a serene oasis in the midst of busy Salisbury city. Because of the large open space of the close, there are numerous views of the cathedral that recall the John Constable paintings and water colors of the 19 th century.
