Just 70 minutes from Bristol
Give summer a big send off with a day trip to the Cathedral city of Salisbury, steeped in ancient history.
Whether it's reliving ancient druidic ceremonies (or Spinal Tap jokes) at nearby Stonehenge, studying the Magna Carta in the famous gothic cathedral or wandering between the timber-framed Tudor buildings, it’s a place to feel lost in time. Yet it’s one of Wiltshire’s liveliest towns too, its grand medieval spire overlooking art galleries, theatres, museums and upscale restaurants galore – just check out the programmes of theatre, film and live music at the Salisbury Arts Centre and the City Hall. Twice-weekly markets have been held in the city for over 600 years and rub up against chic bars and cafés in an arty city unspoilt by urban sprawl. Salisbury is a fantastic example of how to grow old gracefully.
