Visit the New-Look Salisbury Information Centre

Salisbury Information Centre

Here in Salisbury there’s plenty on offer for tourists, with a wide range of things to see and do during your stay. A great starting place for your visit would be the Salisbury Information Centre, which can be found on Fish Row, a short walk from St Anns Forge in the city centre of Salisbury.

The centre has been recently refurbished, providing visitors a stylish, spacious and pleasant environment in which to discover our city’s offerings. Here you can see all the local events taking place and book your tickets, whether it be a trip to the theatre, arts centre or Salisbury Sinfonia concert. Travel and tour arrangements can be made here, including Stonehenge tours, ghost walks through the city or National Express coach bookings.

If you’re looking for somewhere to find a souvenir of your stay, we would recommend browsing through the ‘Made in Salisbury’ range of products that can be found in the Information Centre’s gift shop. What better gift or reminder of your visit than some fantastic local crafts or produce, all made within a 15 mile radius of Salisbury.

So, if you need to find your bearings, seek advice, discover events, or simply buy a map or souvenir, then Salisbury Information Centre should be able to help during your stay in our city.

Where to start?

Salisbury Cathedral

There is so much to see and do in Salisbury and the surrounding area that your only concern will be finding the time to do it all.

On your doorstep

As we’ve mentioned, Salisbury Cathedral and Close is just a minute’s walk from St Anns Forge. Here you can discover over 750 years of history, including Britain’s tallest spire, the world’s best preserved original Magna Carta and Europe’s oldest working clock. We recommend a tour with one of the knowledgeable volunteer guides. Built between 1220 and 1258, in one architectural style, Salisbury is Britain’s finest 13th century Gothic Cathedral.

The surrounding Close is renowned throughout the world. Here, within a sweep of the River Avon and bounded on the other three sides by the ancient Close walls of Chilmark stone, is a haven of peace that contrasts with the bustle of the City just to the north. The Close is full of architectural gems, the ‘more urban’ north section, where many of the elegant Georgian exteriors conceal housing constructed in earlier centuries, contrasts with the ‘more rural’ southern end where there are cottages flanked by trees and hedges – a place in which to admire nature and take a quiet stroll and where, beyond the Close proper towards the river, sheep graze, geese and ducks wander, and wildlife thrives.

In the Close you will find the elegant 18th century National Trust Property, Mompesson House. Its walled garden tea room is highly recommended. You will also find Salisbury Museum, The Rifles Museum, the Medieval Hall and Arundells, Ted Heath’s former home, open to visitors for its final season before being sold for private ownership.

A little further afield

Within a forty five minute drive from Salisbury is Wilton House, the New Forest National Park and the Hampshire and Dorset Coastlines (with links to the Isle of Wight via Southampton and Lymington). Within an hour’s drive is Stonehenge, Longleat, Stourhead and historic cities and towns such as Bath, Winchester, Marlborough and Shaftesbury.
