Buying a house in Salisbury
A city with a real rural feel in southern England, Salisbury is the third largest settlement in Wiltshire, but the only one with city status. With plenty of historic architecture on offer, embellished quite beautifully by Salisbury Cathedral, there are ample opportunities to find something full of character in the property market.

The local area
One of Salisbury’s major draws is its close proximity to world famous Stonehenge, which is located around eight miles out of town, while the city is also nestled beside the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the New Forest National Park. Salisbury Cathedral dominates the skyline with its incredible spire, while popular cultural spots include the Arts Centre, City Hall, Salisbury Playhouse and the Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum.
Salisbury offers easy access to coastal Bournemouth and Southampton via the A338 and A36 respectively, while the M27 can be picked up at the latter city, which leads on to the A3 and M3. A train to Southampton takes approximately half an hour while the capital’s London Waterloo station can be reached in around an hour and a half. Local towns such as Chippenham, Swindon and Trowbridge are fairly straight forward to get to.
There is a selection of good schools in the area that will hearten parents with children. Chilmark and Fonthill Bishop C of E, Broad Chalke C of E, and Sycamore Drive’s Greentrees Primary are all among the primary options, while the choices at secondary level include Avon Valley College, the Stonehenge School and Wiltshire’s only two grammar schools, South Wilts Grammar School for Girls and Bishop Wordsworth’s Grammar School.
