Many of the unique buildings surrounding the close are open to the public. If you don't visit them all at least drop into the museum as it will compliment your trip to the cathedral and the area.

People are getting excited about a stretch of lawn surrounding the Cathedral...it is a lawn. A park. A place to sit, take pictures and relax. it is beautiful but do not let it distract you from the town and the Cathedral.

A lovely atmospheric place extraordinary with an collection of architecture to stroll past and envy. Plenty of space and not overcrowded all set off bythe Cathedral in the middle, definately worth another visit.

A fantastic setting to show off not just this lovely cathedral but a mass of beautiful houses in the huge enclosed close. Lucky to visit on a warm sunny afternoon and see some of the modern sculptures on display.

This is a fantastic place to visit. It is a large Close and it leads off to the main thoroughfare of Salisbury shopping area and very close to the hotel where we were staying. The White Hart. There is the Cathedral that has an Art exhibition which focuses on Hares by Sophie Ryder. These are dotted around the expansive grounds... More

The Close around the Cathedral is lovely for a stroll or to sit and watch the world go by. I love the buildings around The Close and would recommend visiting the former home of Edward Heath and the National Trust property.
