House Removals Salisbury
Salisbury is a medieval cathedral city in the southern English county of Wiltshire. It is 9 miles south of the iconic prehistoric circle at Stonehenge, which stands on the grassland of Salisbury Plain. This is not the only history of the area. The city’s ornate 13th century cathedral has a 123-meter spire, a working 14th century clock and an original copy of the Magna Carta, a key document from 1215 A.D.
Salisbury is known as ‘the city in the country side’ as it is surrounded by a landscape that is quintessentially English. There are dedicated walking and cycling routes in and around Salisbury and, due to the area being naturally flat, there are routes for everybody to enjoy the scenery.
