A Morning Walk in Salisbury, England

I’ve been visiting family friends in Salisbury for over 40 years, and there are certain places that I try to visit each time I’m there.

A first stop is surely the Cathedral Close. The 404-foot stone spire of Salisbury Cathedral is the tallest in England, and there is a large open-air cloister.

Parks span one side of the Cathedral and you can walk across the water meadows to the old mill in Harnham.

Now a hotel, Harnham Mill is a 15th century building with features dating back to 1250.

Salisbury received a royal charter to hold an outdoor market in 1227, and it has been held continuously ever since.

There are also some lovely old pubs in Salisbury where you can sit and drink tea or cider or have a meal.
