Travel Tips for Salisbury

North Gate

by yooperprof

Entrance to Cathedral Property was clearly delineated. North Gate stands astride the High Street of Salisbury, guarding commerce into and out of the Cathedral for centuries. Appropriately, the S.P.C.K. (Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge) bookstore is right outside the gate.

Serum Castle

by Lifestyles

Sometimes in the evenings during the summer, I like to wander over with my bike towards Serum Castle. In the evening it is very peaceful with scenic views from the hill towards the Cathedral, & the surrounding village of Stratford.

There are some hidden path's & grassy mounds to sit on, the only company being crowds of rabbits who have burrows in the hillside & the occasional sheep in the field. There isn't a fence round the moat, my cousin fell into it once when coming back from the pub. A man fell into the dungeon once, when trying to steal from the till. He wasn't found until the next morning; minus white hair from the fright!

Serum is a good place to walk the dog, wierd figures have been seen on the battlements & there are ledgends of ghosts. Some say the nights are the scariest, the only knights I know are the one's in armour & dustbins on thire heads when they have shows.

Don't miss the mummified hand on display

by Lifestyles about The Haunch Of Venison

This is one place not to miss, ever! Dating from 1320 as a chop house for workers of the Cathedral, this building was also the local brothal for Salisbury & is steeped in history; also has a ghost or two. Inside there is an original fireplace and flooring. There is a bar downstairs and the resturant is upstairs. Don't miss the mummified hand on show in a glass box. It belonged to a traveller who was caught cheating at cards, so a butcher chopped it off in a temper. it was discovered during renovations during the 19th Century in the wall, still holding three playing cards.

The Cathedral Close

by maritagnes

The Cathedral Close, with the cathedral at the centre, is the largest close in England. There are many interesting houses of historical value within the walls - including the Salisbury&South Wiltshire Museum, the Medieval Hall from the 13th Century and the Wardrobe Military Museum.

Mompesson House

by unexplored

Built by a wealthy Wiltshire family in 1701, the National Trust-run Mompesson House is a fine Queen Anne house where you can stop for tea in the delightful walled garden that served as Mrs Jennings' London home in the film of Sense and Sensibility.
