On the Salisbury Cathedral Close this National Trust owned house has been beautifully furnished with Georgian and Victorian furniture and porcelain. 370, 18th century drinking glasses were displayed for all to enjoy and were a prized donation from a well known benefactor. A most appropriate...More

Stopped here after going to the cathedral. Would highly recommend. Very friendly and helpful staff who are very informative. House is wonderful but the garden is a hidden gem. Nice looking coffee shop.

Beautiful glassware and a delightful garden. Charming café and friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Worth a couple hours of your time before returning to the cathedral.

This is a small house overlooking Salisbury Cathedral. It houses a collection of glassware and some locally produced paintings. Not worth the money.
