Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum

65 The Close Salisbury SP1 2EN

Prehistoric and town history are the focuses of Salisbury’s premier museum. The rich fruits of archaeological digs into surrounding barrows provide context for a visit to Stonehenge, though perhaps more fun are the sections on town history – older kids will enjoy the desiccated medieval rat found in the skull of William Longespée, Earl of Salisbury, when his tomb in the cathedral was opened. There is also a gallery of watercolours by Turner and regular interesting temporary exhibitions. There is also The King’s House Café, with home cooking ranging from morning bites to a light lunch and a daily specials board with homemade cakes to compliment a cup of tea or coffee.
