Travel Tips for Salisbury

Salisbury Lifestyles

by LouiseTopp

We are devoted to giving people in and around the Salisbury area with physical or learning disabilities a better way of life, so that they are treated as an equal. We don’t have an office as yet although we are looking. Once a month we have a social evening in a pub in and around Salisbury, where we discuss what people want to do next.

We have done several visits like the Isle of Wight, Blackpool Illuminations, Butlins and Florida. We also organise day trips to local shows and museums, if you want to do something all you have to do is ask.

Please check our website for further details.

Victoria Park

by LouiseTopp

Just up from the village of Stratford lies Victoria Park. Named after Queen Victoria after her coronation in 1877, there used to be a band stand here until it sadly burnt down. Here there's crazy golf, tennis, public toilot's & bowls. There are also pretty flower beds there & lot's of tree's. There used to be a football club & field here, I remember the big light's before they moved to Hudsons field.

Once a year the hospital fate used to come here but they are now gone, & I fear now that Victoria park is sadly going into decline.

The picture you see is of an old running track which has been grassed over. In 1913 it was said to be very good in the cyclists handbook. Victoria park has 8 entrances, it's next to a busy road, but there's many oaks. Squirrles live there, there's also a playpark there & a stutue of William herbert who was related to the Pembroke Family at Wilton House.

Salisbury Cathedral

by jonah1

Britain's finest 13th century Cathedral! Discover nearly 800 years of history, including the world's best-preserved Magna Carta (AD 1215) and Europe's oldest working clock (AD 1386). Salisbury Cathedral was built in just 38 years (AD 1220-1258) and is a magnificent example of Early English Gothic architecture. Situated in the largest medieval Close in Britain, it is surrounded by beautiful historic buildings and eight acres of lawns. Explore the roof spaces on a tower tour and experience breathtaking views of the nave from above, as well as out across Salisbury and inside Britain's tallest spire. Be sure to visit the Refectory Restaurant and shop, housed in a modern glass-roofed building with the spectacular sight of the spire soaring high above. All visitors are welcome to attend the daily services by their boy and girl choristers, continuing a tradition of worship that dates back over 800 years.

Salisbury Cathedral

by Goner

It was on a rough field called St. Mary's Mead in 1220 AD that Bishop Richard Poore and his brilliant architect Elias de Derham decided to build a new state-of-the-art Gothic style Cathedral to replace the old Norman Church at Old Sarum.
Because they take so many generations to build, almost all other English Cathedrals are a mixture of different architectural styles. The main body of Salisbury Cathedral which includes the tower and West Front, were completed in a mere 38 years by 300 men.
The huge Cloister (the largest in England) and the magnificent Chapter House (containing the Magna Carta) were added in 1280 AD. But then in 1313 AD the most daring and astonishing addition was made. The tower was raised and on top of it they built in two years, the slender soaring spire which we see today, completing the Cathedral 95 years after Elias first started the work.
Considering that at 404 feet Salisbury Cathedral's spire is the tallest medieval structure in the world it is amazing that it is still standing with foundations only four feet deep. Thankfully nature was on Elias's side and the thick bed of gravel that lies beneath the Cathedral supports the building's immense weight.

Old Sarum

by Goner

Old Sarum is about two miles to the north of the city itself, and represents the earliest origins of Salisbury. Old Sarum was sited on the conjunction of two ancient trade routes and a river and was a thriving town from the first settlement in 300BC to about the 13th century. Originally a bronze age hill fort was the center of life there, many burial mounds and barrows surround the site of the castle. During the Roman occupation, the town became a military base and was renamed Sorviodonum. A cathedral was started in 1067 to the north of the castle. However the town quickly outgrew the available space and eventually a new city, New Sarum was founded, further south. Eventually the old name associated itself with the new city. On the top of the hill there can be found a set of ruins comprising the castle itself, dating back nearly a thousand years and the original Cathedral from about the same time.
