If the weather gets the better of you then don’t let that stop you visiting Salisbury. We’ve plenty to do on a rainy day here. Let us help you plan your days out in the dry with some of the following suggestions:
Explore our cathedral

Around 3 miles out of the city you’ll find Wilton House with its impressive State Rooms and paintings.
Learn more about the area on a visit to one of our museums
Within the Cathedral Close lie both the Salisbury Museum and the Rifles military museum both of which have permanent and temporary exhibitions. Just outside the city is Boscombe Down Aviation Collection where you can get into the cockpits of several aircraft and watch restoration take place.
