Introducing Salisbury

Centred around a majestic cathedral topped by a soaring central spire – the tallest in England – the gracious city of Salisbury makes a charming place from which to explore the rest of Wiltshire. It’s been an important provincial city for more than a thousand years, and its streets are dusted with buildings from almost every period in Britain’s architectural history – medieval walls, half-timbered Tudor townhouses, Georgian mansions and Victorian villas – but Salisbury is a modern, lively place, with plenty of bars, restaurants and terraced cafés, as well as a concentrated cluster of excellent museums.
