Really lovely place to visit. The cathedral grounds is nice for picnics or just walking around. It can get busy.

Around the Cathedral there are a number of important places to visit as well, The Salisbury museum tends to show things about the plains, the rocks, the bowls found out there, etc.
It also has a good selection of books to buy and covers the sculpture artists who have left their compositions around the grounds. This too has a Cafe room, but not so much in the winter months. The cathedral has a house owned by the National trust around the outside of its walls.
Parking is £6 a day, return if you leave is free on that day.
Eating out? The Cathedral has a substantial Tea room, the homemade lemonade is to die for, the Coffee and Teas are pretty good too.

Such a peaceful place, we spent a good couple of hours just sitting, not even saying a word, we just felt a pervasive sense of peace here, doubtless the result of so many good prayers and positive thoughts.

The Close in lovely Salisbury reminds me of a giant less intimate version of an Italian piazza, English village green or New York Central Park Common. Here folks walk, sit and stand on display and soaking it all in. It is conducive to every mood imaginable: peaceful contemplation or respite, snack setting, photo shooting or social adventure by way of chat.

It may be busy at times, there may be far too many tourists or school children at times for some people, but there is always a place where you can find time to sit and reflect on the majestic beauty of the cathedral and the Close. Visit and enjoy.

Go early in the morning about 9 am before the tour buses arrive to fully experience this wonderful precinct. It is easy to while away an hour wandering around Chorister's Close and Cathedral Close just soaking up the atmosphere, with friendly locals walking their dogs greeting you as they pass.

Centred on the beautiful cathedral, this is a place of architectural and historical interest that is peaceful. Enjoy the Cathedral, as well as houses that have links to a number of historical figures.
