What are the road directions to drive from Salisbury to Gatwick

Re: Road travel

by leics

The site will also give you estimated driving times, but you should allow more. Roads are often congested.

Re: Road travel

From Salisbury take the road north out to Amesbury A345 where you will meet the main dual carriageway road A303. Continue towards London on the A303 and you will eventually merge into the M3 motorway (Southampton to London). Continue on the M3 until you get to the M25 (London orbital motorway) and follow the signs to Gatwick. M25 then M23.
The main roads tend to get congested at 'peak times' especially the M3 and M25. So allow an extra 30 minutes. If you are travelling during the day - say from 9.30 to 4pm then you should have little delays. If you want or can check up on traffic conditions before you depart you could look at : http://www.trafficengland.com
I tend to use Google Maps for Driving Directions these days but the AA one is probably as good.

I have used the more southerly route Salisbury towards Southampton then joining the motorway around Southampton and continue on this M27 road along the south coast past Chichester then later turning north near Angemering on the Worthing to London road A24. This is probably longer and will not be as quick (allow 2 hours 30 minutes) but is an alternative if the roads around London are blocked or very slow.

Rough distance in miles from Salisbury to Gatwick Airport is 77 miles or 123.89 Kilometers. If you are in a road vehicle maintaining an average speed of 40mph (64 kmh), it would take you approximately 1.9 hours to travel from Salisbury to Gatwick Airport.
Please refer this site to find road directions step by step.

The AA site I gave in my first post also lists directions step-by-step. Both the AA and RAC are national UK automobile associations, and both are reliable.

However, even their timings are only estimates. It is not possible to give exct timings for any UK journey: our roads are congested and weather often affects traffic flow.

It is always best to allow more time than you think you will need....the surprise when one makes good time is always very pleasant. :-)

Also, watch out for speed cameras on the A303. There's one just past Amesbury

Travel Tips for Salisbury

Go see Salisbury Cathedral. ...

by mjmarble

Go see Salisbury Cathedral. Most people pass through on their way to Stonehenge, but the Cathedral is a gem as well. It has the tallest spire in England and is just beautiful. I believe they may charge a fee to enter (sacreligous if you ask me) but we got in late a night while locals were practicing a passion play. While taking pictures late at night with my spiffy brand new 35mm camera (without a tripod just to further show my ignorance), I noticed that my shutter wasn't closing very fast. Having owned the camera for one month I didn't understand that the shutter was just allowing extended exposure to the light. So the next morning I went and bought a new battery for my camera since the brand new one I had obviously was going dead. It wasn't until later in the trip I actually realized my mistake by talking to a fellow traveler. Amazing enough, one or two of the pictures came out decently, especially for my first night time shots.

The tale of William Longspee

by sourbugger

This bastard offspring of Henry II was instrumental in the building of Salisbury Cathedral and was also a leading light in the Second crusade.

His effigy lies in the south Aisle, but he now has notoriety for two other reasons.

Firstly, when his tomb was opened in the 1790's his skull was found to contain a rat that had died of arsenic poisoning (you just couldn't make this stuff up). If you have a macarbe fascination for such things then the disgusting thing can still be found in the nearby Salisbury and South Wilts Museum.

Secondly (and completely unrelated to the first), William Longspee is one of the ancestors of the US president : George Bush. I doubt that he has anything so useful lodged in his skull.

Park and Ride

by LouiseTopp

There are three park and ride area's near to Salisbury, they are:

Britford Park
Wilton
The Beehive.

There are plane to build another one at London Road. The park and rides are supposeed to reduce the stress out of shopping, but I personally don't think it's working as the public transport in Salisbury is terrible with buses never running on time abd rude staff. The comapany who runs it is called Wilts and Dorset (less said about them the better).

There was once a company called Silverstar who operated Salisbury district in the 20's until the late fifties, then Wilts and Dorset invaded and took over. A few years ago we had another company called Badgerline who were brilliant. Wilts & Dorset had a bus war and slashed their prices, Badgerline lost so Wilts and Dorset is the main bus service.

Salisbury Cathedral

by al_mary

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
We recommend a must to see.
The tallest Cathedral in the UK ....

In was interesting to learn that
in the 1190s the Bishop, Dean and
Chapter of Canons of the Salisbury
Cathedral embarked upon a visionary
enterprise. At that time the cathedral
was poorly situated within the crowded
precincts of the King's Castle now
known as Old Sarum ......
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

The clergy resolved to move to a new site where they
would build a magnificent cathedral set on spacious
grounds with large tracts of land for the houses of the
canons and dean and for the bishop's palace, a town
laid out on a grid of streets around a large market square
with a unique hydraulic system that would provide the
townspeople with fresh water diverted from the river and
parish churches to serve a growing poulation.

Many years had passed before the plan could be fully
implemented.

Then on April 28, 1220, in solemn ceremony, stones
were laid for the foundations of the Cathedral Church
of the Blessed Virgin Mary. By the day of consecration,
September 20, 1258, the cathedral and the town were
flourishing. The dream had become reality ......

See the Stones

Stonehenge is one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world ,and although you can't get close up to the Stones as you used to be, it is still an overwhelming site and one of the most fascinating places you can ever see.
Only try not to be there in the rain as we were, because there is nowhere to shelter!
The sheep in the fields around the ancient site are very sweet too.
Get the free audio guide,it's very useful and interesting.
I don't have my own photos as it was raining there too much but I am sure you have seen other pix of it on VT
