Discover the story of the original Salisbury and take the family for a day out to Old Sarum, 2 miles north of where the city stands now. The mighty Iron Age hill fort was where the first Cathedral once stood and the Romans, Normans and Saxons have all left their mark.
Today, 5,000 years of history are told through graphic interpretation panels on site. Families, heritage lovers and walkers can enjoy a great value day out at Old Sarum -you could even bring a picnic and enjoy the fantastic views across the Wiltshire countryside.
