"Salisbury" Salisbury by iwys

Salisbury Travel Guide: 315 reviews and 801 photos

Salisbury is a pretty, little market town with a population of less than 50,000, but it has one of the grandest and most beautiful cathedrals in Britain, Salisbury Cathedral, which has the tallest spire in the country. As you approach Salisbury that is the first thing you will see, from miles away.

Britain's greatest ancient wonder, Stonehenge, stands on Salisbury Plain, just north of the town.

    Hi Ian, beautiful page - interesting to see where William Golding was headmaster!

    Went to the Wig and Quill on Sunday - not very impressed. Food was luke warm and very slow to arrive. My son's food (Lasagne) was ice cold. Will not be recommending this pub.

    Wouldn't call Stonehenge "off the beathen path"! Excellent page though :)

    Have you visited Avebury? Personally, I enjoyed that henge much more than Stonehenge. Salisbury was one of my favourites too, just sitting on the lawn outside the cathedral. I read "Sarum" so I wanted to visit. :)

    I think it is a must-see, even though the mystical feeling is hard to get with the big street close by...

    It's been years since I visited Salisbury, maybe it's time to revisit. Nice page :))

    I didn't get to see as much of Salisbury as you. Thanks for sharing. It's a lovely old town. Great tips and pics...

    HI! Ian: On the contrary, I still remember Salisbury fondly. It's just that the trip was too long ago; I rather keep it as a fond memory. (I try my best not to put up junk tips)

    Fascinating...Stonehenge. So who did bring those stones there and pile them up like that?
