Clues To Go    -    Salisbury

This walking route stays in the very centre of the Cathedral city, mainly in pedestrianised areas and includes a short stroll by the river Avon before visiting Choristers' Green and the Cathedral Close. It takes you back to a medieval England, with its wonderful, bustling Charter Market, street names such as Fish Row & Butchers' Row, ancient hostelries called The Haunch of Venison or the Wig & Quill.

Medieval, Tudor & Victorian buildings are all mixed together in the town centre. The Tourist Information Office is located on Fish Row, just behind the Market Square.

 

If you have the time, the Cathedral itself is a wonderful building to explore (there is an entrance fee). Boasting the tallest spire in England & Europe's oldest working clock, it is full of this country's history and has on display one of only four versions of the Magna Carta (the Clues To Go route does not require you to enter the Cathedral).

Its also well worth setting aside an hour to browse the various market stalls in the square.

Pay-&-display car parking in Salisbury is clearly signposted as you approach the town. For a map of car parks in the town centre, click here.

For a refreshment break during your visit, make use of the many pubs, cafes and restaurants in the Market Square, many of which have outdoor seating during the summer months.

If you are looking for an additional reason to visit Salisbury, then remember that historic Stonehenge is close by, as is the stately home and safari park of Longleat.
