Why Move to Salisbury
The Cathedral city of Salisbury can be found in the county of Wiltshire. Even before you reach Salisbury, the cathedral’s 404 feet spire dominates the skyline and is the beating heart of the city.
Although the actual city was not established until 1220, there has been a settlement in the area since prehistory. Home to the best-preserved Magna Carta manuscript, and only a few miles from the iconic Stonehenge, Salisbury’s historical importance is beyond question.
Sublimely British, it is the only city in the county of Wiltshire. Salisbury is a wonderful place to live and to visit. Named several times as one of the top ten cities in the UK to visit by the Lonely Planet Guide.
Never a dull moment, the city is full restaurants, coffee shops, pubs, bars, clubs, hotels, boutiques, and vintage markets. Collectively it has earned this lovely city its prestigious Purple Flag status.
Not short on culture either, Salisbury offers a host of museums, art galleries, theatres, and historical buildings to explore.
Although known primarily for its historical links, Salisbury is surrounded by some of the best and most natural countryside in England. Within its boundaries are plenty of parks and gardens.
Living in Salisbury offers residents a wide choice of travel links. The main train station has departures to several major towns and cities in the region. 30 mins to Southampton, regular services to Bristol, (67 mins on the hourly fast trains) and 90 mins to London Waterloo.
Travelling by road can be problematic as the main ring road around the city tends to get quite congested, however, the A3 into London is 45 mins away and Bristol Airport is just over an hour’s drive away making it ideal for European and international travel.
Living in Salisbury, you have everything you need on your doorstep; great shops, timbered buildings, a Gothic cathedral, buzzing arts scene, thriving markets and the swan-dotted River Avon.
Schools & Education
Having a good choice of education providers is of course especially important to consider when relocating.
Salisbury is home to some particularly good schools, including the county’s only two grammar schools South Wilts Grammar School for Girls and Bishop Wordsworth’s School, which is for boys.
Many of the local primary schools are deemed “good” says Ofsted. Among these are St Mark’s CofE, St Andrew’s C of E Laverstock, St Martin’s C of E, St Osmund’s Catholic and Woodlands. With Sarum St Paul’s C of E (VA) Primary School having been ranked as “outstanding”.
There are several high schools in the catchment area and one of the best is St Joseph’s Catholic, rated by Ofsted as “good” with some “outstanding features”. Sarum Academy and Wyvern College are both “good”.
The Salisbury campus of Wiltshire College offers a range of further education courses, as well as some higher education courses in association with Bournemouth University.
Things to do in Salisbury
All sorts of interesting and fun leisure opportunities are available when you live in Salisbury. Plus, everything is close by and easy to get to.
As the cathedral is the city’s most revered landmark and a fascinating place to visit. Boasting one of the tallest spires in Europe, visitors can take the “Tower Tour”, in which the interior of the hollow spire, with its ancient wooden scaffolding, can be viewed.
The cathedral also houses the best preserved of the four original Magna Carta manuscripts dating from 1215AD.
Salisbury is home to several parks and green spaces, making a perfect place to relax after a busy day at work. Many parks offer play areas for children, and some have additional facilities including mobile cafes, as well as pretty riverside walks.
Old Sarum is a massive Iron Age hill fort located two miles north of the city centre now under the care of English Heritage. Old Sarum contains the ruins of a castle, the foundations of the original Cathedral and has influences from Norman, Saxon, and Roman times.
Historic streets are home to all kinds of independent retailers offering unusual items you will not find on every high street; products which are designed and crafted locally.
Tuesdays and Saturdays are market days and the city’s population swells.
The hustle and bustle of the historic Charter Market fills the Market Place whilst a whole array of other interesting markets take place throughout the year.
In the nearby village of Wilton, you will find Wilton House which is the perfect day out in the Summer with a picnic. It has acres of land with beautiful gardens, a huge play area and an exquisite house where part of Pride and Prejudice (2005) was filmed.
9 miles from Salisbury sits one of Wiltshire’s most famous monuments Stonehenge. The ring of standing stones is each around 13 feet high, seven feet wide, and weighing around 25 tons. Set within earthworks in the middle of the densest complex of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments are a sight to see.
As you would expect from a city with such historical roots, located centrally in Cathedral Close there are some stunning Tudor style residences. Extremely expensive these homes rarely come onto the market.
There are, however, lots of more affordable streets with reasonably priced property. Head to Churchill Way where you will find some Victorian town houses and terraces.
The suburbs of West Harnham and East Harnham are also appealing and here you can pick up a one bedroom flat for as little as £80,000.
According to Zoopla, the average price for a home in the city is currently £375,917, with the average price paid a little lower at £339,245 bringing it in just under the national average.
If you intend to rent a home, you will pay upwards of £575 per month for a one bedroomed flat and around £985 for a detached three bedroomed property.
