": Salisbury" Reading Favorite Tip by Geoff_Wright

Reading General: 14 reviews and 14 photos


Fondest memory: Salisbury is the administrative centre of Wiltshire, in Southern England. It is a market town with varied industries, amongst which are the famous Wilton Carpet factories. Salisbury was founded in 1220, when the bishopric was moved here from Old Sarum. The great Cathedral, a splendid example of Early English architecture with the highest spire in England (4o4 feet or 123 metres), was built mainly between 1220 and 1260. The 13th Century palace of the bishops and numerous medieval churches are of interest.
