Map & Directions

Road Directions

If you are in Salisbury for a whole day you may choose the park and ride which gives great access into the centre. If you want to drive in, the easiest parking is either the open air car park on Cranebridge Road (SP2 7TD) or the Old George Mall multi story on New Street (SP1 2PH). But in reality we are very close to all the central car parks such as The Maltings.

Public Transport Directions

From the train or bus station head down Fisherton Street, turn left into the High Street towards the Cathedral Close. Forty yards before the arched entrance turn right on Crane Street and we are right there.

From the Market Place follow take Silver Street of Canal Street and turn left into the High Street. Again turn right into Crane Street

From the Cathedral head towards the High Street and the station. Once through the arch at the first cross roads, turn left onto Crane Street and we are just there.

We’re quite a way from Southampton airport!

    We called in for a late lunch after visiting the cathedral. It was nice place to get out of the sun and relax with a pint of real ale. Wifey fancied the crayfish, while I had the trout salad... Read full review
