Described by many as the city in the countryside, Salisbury has a great deal to offer its visitors from historic architecture to a thriving market and shopping areas.
Why not start the day by taking a guided tour of Salisbury Cathedral and learning about the history of those who came to seek inspiration in the glory and peace of the building and surrounding Cathedral Close. Britain's tallest spire will prove to awe those who visit by the beauty and scale of the cathedral interior and also gives you the opportunity to study the original Magna Carta in its Chapter House.
Following this, why not stop for tea and a cake at The Polly Tearooms, Salisbury, where a selection of fresh cakes, homemade bread and patisseries is available throughout the day. The tearoom offers a quintessentially English tea experience. Perfect for a chance to rest and refuel.

This is an unforgettable World Heritage Site and British landmark in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside; it is a highlight of the South West.
Finish this spectacular day at the Avon Brewery who pride themselves on being a traditional pub in the city centre. With local brew, a warm welcome and great food – it is the perfect place to end the day.
