English heritage site. very interesting .spectacular views. Good information points all around the site. The nearby airfield was a bonus as a lo of old airplanes flew over the site as well as seeing some parachute drops

This site, though in ruins holds a unique place in Christian worship along with its role in English history. It is a shame it is in such disrepair.

This place just outside of Salisbury is very interesting and beautiful, it has a great view and shows you some of the historical background of the city.

I was bought here regularly as a child, and now bring my own children. It is great to have such a big open space to run around, and for kids to see the history but without the risk of damage

Old Sarum doesn’t really look like much, just some walls on top of a hill. But take the time to visit, especially on a sunny June morning. A nice walk around the top of the walls provides a wonderful view of the cathedral in Salisbury....More

This is a terrific site for a casual walk, and the access provided by paid admission is definitely worth it. In addition, it's good to know that the admission fee helps support historic national sites.

If you are interested in ancient history or you read the book "sarum" than you have to visit Old Sarum. I could recommend to combine it with a visit to Stonehenge which isn't really far from Old Sarum.

The Old Sarum sight is well maintained historical site run by English Heritage. Very easy to stroll around the site and explore the fascinating history and ancient constructions. Mind boggling!

if you just want to see the ruins maybe 90 mins or so depending if you walk the surrounds. why not add in a picnic or visit the pub avross tne road. If you're trying to cram, combine with stonehenge and Salisbury city. Enjoy
