Situated in the heart of historic Salisbury, The Chapter House lies within easy reach of some of Southern England’s most important landmarks and an ideal base from which to explore Wilshire’s historic sights.

A visit to Salisbury would be incomplete without a visit to Salisbury Cathedral. See Europe’s oldest working clock, Britain’s tallest spire, the best preserved of the 4 surviving original copies of the Magna Carta manuscripts and if you have a head for heights then a tower tour is a must for spectacular views of the city.
Visit the award-winning Salisbury & South Wiltshire Museum housing many artefacts from Salisbury’s past including the Stonehenge Gallery and the Rifles Museum, a military museum dedicated to the Berkshire and Wiltshire regiment.
There’s Mompesson House, a Queen Anne style house with beautiful courtyard garden, and just two miles north of the city is Old Sarum, the original site of Salisbury. Join Salisbury City Guides on a guided walk and learn more about the wealth of history or if you are interested in travel to Stonehenge then a trip aboard the Stonehenge Tour Bus is a must.

If you fancy guiding yourself around the city then why not look at getting one of the Treasure Trails guides to Salisbury? Nearby there’s the magnificent stately home of Wilton House and not forgetting the World Heritage Site of Stonehenge, which is just 10 miles north of the city.
