Things to do in Salisbury
Odeon Cinema

If you retire to Salisbury, you won’t be short of things to do. Starting with the Gothic splendour of Salisbury Cathedral. It boasts Britain’s tallest spire and is home to nesting peregrine falcons as well as the world’s best-preserved copy of the Magna Carta and the oldest working clock.

Then there’s Old Sarum, one of the earliest settlements in Salisbury, two miles from the centre. This iron age fort was home to Romans, Saxons and Normans and also a medieval castle. It makes a brilliant day out for history buffs – and their grandchildren.

For culture vultures, Salisbury Arts Centre hosts exhibitions, performances and films. Or try the independent gallery and café at Fisherton Mill. There’s theatre at the renowned Salisbury Playhouse and a unique Odeon cinema housed in a fantastic 15th century building.
