The Close is in central Salisbury, a five-minute walk from the High Street with shops, cafes and a twice-weekly market. There are excellent arts and cultural venues, including the Salisbury PlayhouseCity HallOdeon cinema, as well as award-winning museums and Mompesson House, a fine National Trust property.

If you’re looking for nightlife you will find dozens of buzzing restaurants, pubs and bars just a few minutes’ walk away.
