Culture/Sightseeing

Salisbury is a picturesque city to explore, and the beauty of it is not just the setting, but the fact that it is flat to walk around comfortably.

A visit to the iconic medieval cathedral with the tallest spire in Britain is a must for any visitor. There are some unique features in ths 800-year-old building – you can see the world’s oldest mechanical clock and the original Magna Carta. What is impossible to miss is the cruciform font in the centre of the nave. Over 10ft wide it bubbles with flowing water,reflecting the magnificent stained-glass windows.

Within the cathedral close is the National Trust property of Mompesson House, so it is easy to combine a visit which in the locality.

We stopped in the pleasant market square, where there were a number of craft stalls and local artists were displaying their work. There was a delightful cafe with friendly service called Pick Up where we sat outside to enjoy delicious cakes.

Our evening meal before returning on the train was taken at The Bishop’s Mill, a 1700’s pub by the river at the Maltings. It is one of the better Greene King pubs in nice surroundings. They seated us away from the bar area where it was quieter.

There are many beautiful and interesting places to see in the surrouding area such as Stonehenge, but I think that the city of Salisbury has enough to explore on its own.
