Salisbury – Interesting Points Of Discovery
A stone’s throw from Salisbury is the Salisbury Museum – the museum is situated in the fascinating Kings House. There’s all sorts of historic information on Salisbury including a lot of info on Stonehenge (why it may have been developed and by whom).
Wilton House has close associations to both Henry VIII and William Herbert. Henry actually presented Wilton House to William in 1541 and the estate doesn’t let down, with grounds stretching over 8 hectares and building interiors that feature splendid painted ceilings, exquisite hanged paintings and more. Surrounding the house are wonderfully manicured gardens. The house is about 2 miles west of Salisbury and is well worth a travel to if you’re around long enough.
If this matters to you, there’s also the beautiful Malmesbury House nearby – built in the thirteenth century, the house was the home of the first Earl of Malmesbury.
