"Parking in the Cathedral Close" Cathedral Close Parking Tip by grandmaR
Cathedral Close Parking, Salisbury: 1 reviews and 2 photos
Our daughter drove us to Salisbury and she parked in the carpark (it was £5.00 then and it is £6.00 now) in the close - the price is for the whole day and includes handicapped parking. Which was expensive, but it was pretty close to the cathedral. And the walk enabled me to get additional pictures of the cathedral from a different perspective.
The houses in the close date from the 13th to the 20th century. They were originally built to house the senior clergy but now there are only 5 members of the chapter resident. Most are now private residences but there are a few that are open to the public.
The Cathedral website says: If you are visiting for a shorter period of time you will find the park and ride sites or city centre car parks more economical.
