was driving from Stonehenge to go to Salisbury cathedral and saw a sign for this castle so decided to stop and after the hectic mess that was Stonehenge was really nice to have a relaxed walk round this site with its huge moat you can get a real feel for what a huge task attacking a place like this would be

Not to be missed. So much fascinating history that you can feel it. Great views I wish we had known to take a picnic.

Really worth a visit, lots of history and the views were great too. Reasonable entrance fee and a good shop.

Difficult to visualise given the amount of ruins left but in a truly spectacular location and still well worth a visit.

Old Sarum, where nomads settlled and became farmers. That happened long before nearby Stonehenge and it makes you feel history all over - and inside - your body. THIS IS A MUST! We can only think of Glanum in southern France, and the Pyramids in Egypt, when we try to compare to what we have seen before.

It is meaningless to write a review on Old Sarum. And futile. So I can tell about the staff in the shop and at the gate instead. Nice, humourous, inventive. Everything you want from such people. And one of them just loves Marmite! That is unexplicable, but a fact.

Did I say that you shall JUST GO THERE?
