Old Sarum is a very suggestive place for history lovers. It is easy to reach and enjoy step by step. Remember to bring your boots, because it can get muddy.

Old Sarum is a really great place for those who like walking and those who like a bit of history. You don't have to pay see the ruins to appreciate Old Sarum just walking around the rings as we locals call them is great for blowing the cobwebs away and admiring the views over New Sarum ( Salisbury)

We had a lovely walk around. The car park can get a bit full and the road up to the car park is a bit tight for two way traffic but once up there the views are worth it.

This is a wonderful site where you can imagine the lives of generations past and the lives that were spent here through the ages. Could be more guidance, and information made available. Pretty much a self guided walk through.

Amazing views over Salisbury and the Wiltshire countryside. Well worth paying the £4.50 entry as very interesting, however the information boards are quite weary and need urgently upgrading.

A very interesting place to visit for the history of Salibury as was. Bigger than you imagine from the main road. Well kept grounds and great views. Very good pictures of the ( new) cathedral from here, weather permitting.

I live very close and often take long walks around the rings with my 6 and 7 year old. The walk has beautiful sights with a large area of green in the middle.
