I have lived near Salisbury for ten years now and I never fail to get excited by the city. It is a city that has stunning architecture, lovely Cathedral and amazing views. There are fabulous walks all around the city - try Elizabeth Gardens where you can walk around to the Mill Hotel and along the way visit the exact stop where Turner painted his iconic view of Salisbury Cathedral. There are lots of places to eat and drink in Salisbury including pubs, coffee bars, fast food take outlets and hotels with restaurants. The accommodation is varied from B&Bs in the way into Salisbury to hotels such as The red Lion, The White Hart (part of ... Read the complete review

Salisbury in a city in Wiltshire, approx 1.5 hours from London by train and is a beautiful place to visit any time of the year. Whatever you look for when choosing a place to visit for a day or longer, I am covinced that Salisbury has something for everyone. Surrounded by rolling green countryside it is a picturesque and calm place to visit. The river Avon flows through Salisbury and there are many countryside walks that take you along it with plenty of pubs in the town to have a drink or meal it and sit by it. The town has an impressive number of shops suitable for old and young alike. The Old George Mall boasts olde english gift shops ... Read the complete review

Travel broadens the mind. Over the years it has been one of my favourite pastimes. I particularly enjoy visiting places of historical interest, walking around, and soaking up the local atmosphere. I enjoy discovering the past and I am intrigued as to what happened many years ago. Whether it is on holiday abroad, or in our own country –it has always fascinated me. Salisbury is one of many cities in the country that I have visited. It was also the name of the capital city of the former African State of Southern Rhodesia where I spent five years of my early childhood life. Today marks the anniversary of an important historical event in ... Read the complete review

I am fairly certain I can guarantee you a full day of leisure if you choose to visit my home town of Salisbury in Wiltshire. The city of New Sarum is probably most famous for its cathedral with its 404 foot spire being the tallest in England. Inside the cathedral you will find a copy of the Magna Carta and also the oldest clock in the UK - it has no hands or face but is still in perfect working order. Leaving the cathedral, you may like to visit the museum with its Roman mosaic, or wonder around the shopping centre. Here, try to look above the shop fronts to notice the original medieval architecture that still remains on many of the listed buildings in the city ... Read the complete review
