All reviews english heritage castle ruins information boards original cathedral dog walking iron age surrounding countryside nice walk run around sunny day guide book worth a visit interesting place steeped in history entrance fee walk around stonehenge tour
If you like your history or are a tourist to the area then this place is a must see. You won’t be the first visitor here as the Neolithics, Celts, Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and Normans all beat you to it!
Not alot left of old Sarum, a few walls and lots of diagrams put up by the National Trust. If you've never visited this place it will take you about an hour at a stretch to cover all the details. It's very bleak once again...More
It's ok if you tie it in with a few other trips in & around the city but I certainly wouldn't want visit Salisbury just to come here!

Really enjoy taking the dog up here for a walk - views of Salisbury are amazing - the staff are incredibly friendly - and there’s always a bowl of water out for the pooch. Interesting to see the foundations of the original cathedral and generally...More
This is a place for a sunny day with dogs and kids, or perhaps for those who like striking views with their history. Great for a couple of hour. Impeccably kept without spoiling its charm. We all loved it, you will too!

if you just want to see the ruins maybe 90 mins or so depending if you walk the surrounds. why not add in a picnic or visit the pub avross tne road. If you're trying to cram, combine with stonehenge and Salisbury city. Enjoy
