Salisbury and District

A Castle, Knights, Bishops, Queens, Cabbages and Kings, 5 Rivers, 3 Cathedrals and a Magna Carta - a City built through Place and its People.

The story of Salisbury starts at an Iron Age hill-fort 2 miles north of the present city. It was here that the first cathedrals were built, where the mint was transferred and where William the Conqueror built a castle. Nothing quite evokes the passage of time as standing in the place where our ancient families lived and died. It was from here that the city moved to it's present site and a glorious Cathedral was built all starting in the year 1220. Come and visit all that our Medieval City has to offer.

We are Blue Badge Guides ready to show you our great Medieval City and the fascinating history that surrounds it.
