The Cathedral Close is a tranquil place to visit, an oasis within the City and contains most of the places of interest. As well as the Cathedral you have Arundells, Museum of Salisbury, Rifles Museum, Mompesson House and places to eat.

I'm keen to stay at the close in August but had no reply to 2 emails sent over the last week. Maybe I've got the address wrong.
