In Salisbury

Salisbury Cathedral

With cooler temperatures and less crowds, September can be a great time to make a short break. Here in Salisbury there is still plenty to see and do during September, from the opportunity to get active to the chance to sample some of our tasty local produce. Check out some of this month’s highlights…

Salisbury Car Fest

Lovers of anything automotive should head to the Market Place on Sunday 8 September for Salisbury Car Fest

This free event celebrates motor vehicles including rally cars, sports cars, super cars and much more. Why not combine your visit with a lunch out at one of our pubs or restaurants? There are plenty to choose from around the Market Place or within easy walking distance. 

Heritage Open Days

The annual Heritage Open Days organised by the local Civic Society are set to return in September. Often offering a chance to explore places that aren’t usually open to the public, or giving free access to sites that you’d normally pay to get into. This year, Mompesson House will be opening its doors for free on Saturday 14 September and the Haunch of Venison pub will be running tours (booking essential). Discover what else is on locally on the Heritage Open Days’ website

Stained Glass Autumn Leaves

Learn about the basic tools and techniques required for Copper Foiling and practise cutting glass in a hands-on craft workshop at Langford Lakes nature reserve, near Salisbury. A great way to bring home a special memento of your trip. Booking is essential as places are limited. 

Salisbury Food & Drink Festival

One of the highlights in the Salisbury calendar, the Salisbury Food & Drink Festival is set to return on Sunday 29 September. Taking over the Market Place, the Guildhall and the Guildhall Square there will be numerous stalls and lots of opportunity to sample our local fare. So whether you fancy a cheeky pint of local ale or perhaps something sweet, you won’t go hungry on a visit here. Plus, live music and cookery demonstrations will entertain you. It sounds like the perfect kind of Sunday to us! 

Salisbury Half Marathon

Feeling a bit more energetic? The Salisbury Half Marathon is due to take place on the same date as the Salisbury Food & Drink Festival, Sunday 29 September. Whether you fancy taking part or just cheering on the participants, there will certainly be a great atmosphere and it’s a great way to see some of the city’s landmarks too! 

What else is on?

Of course this is just a selection of what’s taking place across the city over September. Browse our events listings for theatre, performances, exhibitions and much more. Look out for seasonal breaks on accommodation and make an early autumn getaway. There are plenty of walks, cycling routes and other activities that you can enjoy here on a minibreak to our city. 

We look forward to seeing you in September!
