Visiting Salisbury

Salisbury offers a fantastic little find if you’re looking for a pretty cathedral city to take it easy in. The streets are pretty and narrow, with cobbled pavements and all manner of quirky shops and boutiques. The shopping is fantastic, and you are just as likely to find a one-of-a-kind vintage hideaway as well as all the high street stores your heart could desire. Eating out is also fab; with a wide selection of choice, with a little something for every taste and budget. We enjoyed everything from low budget pizza places (with lots of character) to treating ourselves to something a little luxurious on the last night of our stay! Something worth noting, is that the hotels in Salisbury very often have fantastic adjoining restaurants, offering delicious haute cuisine.

A city so steeped in history obviously has an awful lot to entertain tourists, and we particularly
