I actually loved this place! It was included in a tour I took from Salisbury, but very few people get off from the bus on the way back to Stonehenge, and I think you'd be missing out on a beautiful place if you don't visit. It's very close to Salisbury itself, but the views are amazing from there. It's set on a small hill, with nothing but trees and nature all around it. This was where the old Salisbury used to be, before they moved it to where it is now. There's only a few walls left, but you can definitely feel the importance of the place. And it does for a nice walk away from the noise of the highway. Absolutely stunning if you like nature and quiet.

Always a bit of a windy experience which is why they left in the early days! Lots of views and fresh air available and lots of people walking their dogs.

Had a fantastic hour or so looking around the very impressive ruins. There is also a great view of the nearby airfield and the planes coming in to land. Well worth the visit.

Had always wanted to visit here. The castle was very interesting - extremely helpful NT people on site.

The ruins of the original cathedral are very atmospheric.
