Salisbury is probably best known for its iconic Cathedral and nearby Stonehenge, but there’s so much more. Five rivers meet in the city, and the resultant valleys with their chalk downlands make for some of the greenest and best walking country we know.
You’ll spend three nights (or more!) based in the heart of the city, and from there will be able to choose from our menu of walks, selected from personal favourites that we enjoy when we’re not out and about in the rest of Europe. There’s something to suit everyone and each walk is designed to ensure it can be reached either directly from your accommodation, or via the local bus service.
The city itself dates back to 1220 but, of course, our history predates that by many millennia and comes alive with every step … stand on the site where Henry II met Thomas Becket in 1164 (an event which led to his exile and death just six years later); shop at the market that Pepys described as ‘most capacious’, and if you have time, recreate Constable’s famous view… three nights may not be quite enough.
Your accommodation will be either a small, independently-owned city centre hotel or B&B.
