This is one of those things that you take a look at as you're passing by. It's worth a quick look, like so many buildings in the centre of Salisbury, but not much more unless you've some special interest.

The guy running the Museum/gift shop in the gate was hilarious. I am an American who was on my first trip to Salisbury and thanks to this man, can now pronounce Salisbury (Madam) correctly. Really well taken care of historical site. Lovely to see.

Just stand there and drink it in. Take your camera. It is a wonderful little gem. And the view down the street is great. There is a little post office right there so it is a great place to get stamps for your postcards too.
