Old Sarum overlooks Salisbury. One can get a good distant view of the cathedral. It was not overly crowded so one could enjoy the aura surrounding the site. When one climbs to the top of the ruins one can get a marvelous view of the remains of the old cathedral. I had never been there before and really enjoyed it.

There are lots of brilliant events on here during the summer but as a place in its own right it is interesting too. The original cathedral stood here, the ruins of the castle are beautifully explained and you can relax in the large open space in the middle and watch gliders and private planes, including vintage ones fly overhead.

I took the bus from Salisbury -- it's only about five minutes, then walked back through the fields and city -- it took about 45 mins.

The staff were very friendly and the views spectacular. It's a ruin, but possible to cover a lot of terrain compared to some.

There is a small gift shop, which also sells drinks and ice cream.

Leaving our car parked in the city we had a day exploring Salisbury and surrounds. Caught a local bus out to Old Sarum and walked up to the site. Absolutely magnificent.

You have to go for the wonderful views of Salisbury Cathedral and places to chill out, it can be very windy so take a hat.
