Salisbury has long been recognised as one of the cultural hubs of the South, and annually hosts a wonderful variety of arts events.

Cathedral Gate

At the forefront of the arts scene, Salisbury Playhouse is one of the UK’s leading producing theatres, with a wide range of classic and contemporary plays, musicals, children’s theatre and pantomime presented throughout the year.

the day for coffee, lunch or pre-show dinner. The Playhouse is situated off Fisherton Street, adjacent to the large Central Car Park, and just a 5 minute walk from Salisbury Railway Station. To find out what’s on, and to book online, visit

A great way to learn more about the history of Salisbury and the surrounding areas (including Stonehenge) is to make a visit to one of the city’s museums. The Salisbury Museum is located in the King’s House within Salisbury’s Cathedral Close, and houses exhibitions of the various periods of Salisbury’s history from its days at Old Sarum through to more modern times.

In 2014, a new world-class gallery of archaeology housing one of Europe’s most extensive collections of Stonehenge and prehistoric artefacts opened within the museum. Here, you get the opportunity to handle various objects, see interactive displays and learn more about the area’s rich archaeology and history.

The museum holds regular events throughout the year including archaeology lecture, school holiday events as well as major exhibitions including works by Constable, Turner and an exhibition on the life of Cecil Beaton.

The Rifles Berkshire and Wiltshire Museum celebrates a long military presence within the museum. The museum is housed in The Wardrobe, one of the oldest buildings within the Cathedral Close within short reach of Salisbury Museum, Mompesson House, and Salisbury Cathedral and also offers a peaceful riverside garden with views of Salisbury Cathedral.

Salisbury Museum

Within the museum you’ll find exhibitions on 250 years of military history from two local infantry regiments as well as temporary exhibitions on a variety of military-related themes.

Located on the edge of Salisbury, close to Old Sarum, Boscombe Down Aviation Collection is a working museum where you can see aviation restoration take place. There are over 100 exhibits here including 30 aircraft and cockpits to sit in.

No trip to Salisbury would be complete without a visit to Fisherton Mill Arts Complex. As the last surviving victorian grain mill in the town centre it has a unique role matched only by the unique arts, crafts and gifts that are on show there.

Over the last two decades the Mill has been transformed so that today, alongside the Gallery and the Café, there are also 13 boutique and design Studios making it a true creative hothouse. Allow time to pop upstairs where you will have the opportunity to watch a range of artists and designers at work, including two jewellers, a garden designer and two fabulous knitting and sewing shops who also offer classes. But it is not all arts and crafts.

It is also one of Salisbury’s most popular coffee and eating places well known for inventive combinations of locally sourced and freshly prepared foods that aim to be both delicious and excellent value.

Easy to find in Fisherton Street in Salisbury, a 3 minute walk from the Railway Station and 5 minutes from the Market Place - you can’t miss the orange banners above the archway.
