Date Posted: 09/05/2018

It’s business as usual in Salisbury and the surrounding Wiltshire area where a warm welcome and a plethora of great tourism ideas await group visitors.

Here are some top recommendations for a future visit, selected by Visit Wiltshire:

New tours are available at the Salisbury Cathedral and Magna Carta for 2018/2019, with refreshment packages available. Don’t miss the Twilight Tower Tours that can be enjoyed with a cream tea. These run from the end of November until the first week of January 2019.

Arundells is a Grade II listed house which has a new exhibition this year called Music: A Joy for Life. Running from 2nd June until 6th November, it will explore and celebrate previous Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath’s life-long love of music. Group tours are available. 

And at Mompesson House you can enjoy the secluded garden, explore the house, or take tea in the garden tea-room. Group benefits include special rates for pre-booked parties of ten or more people. 

Other great places to visit in the Cathedral Close include The Rifles Berkshire & Wiltshire Museum and The Salisbury Museum. On the outskirts of the city you'll find local produce at Britford Farm Shop.

There is a range of suitable accommodation with a multitude of food options either in the city or in surrounding areas, including Holiday Inn Salisbury-Stonehenge, The Cathedral Hotel, and The Red Lion Hotel - the latter having just been awarded four AA stars. For something a little different, try the Stonehenge Campsite and Glamping Pods.

If you require transport in and around the county, Salisbury, Stonehenge and Sarum Tours or The Stonehenge Tour both offer great tours to the historical landmarks of Wiltshire.

And for a walking tour of the city, try Salisbury City Guides who will show you the true history of this Medieval city.

There is currently free parking for coaches in Salisbury car parks.
