Heath was a modern day polymath. History will judge his political life but you cannot but admire his achievements as a yachtsman, musician and artist. House week preserved as He lived in it and guides in each room are well worth listening to.

Such an interesting house to learn of the life of Ted Heath. The guests he had for dinner, the five yachts all called Morning Cloud and his love of music. Top notch guides who made the visit extra special with thorough knowledge and lots of...More

With a dedicated volunteer in every room to tell you many many details about Ted Heath's later life (and early career) you will learn many unexpected things about the late PM who presided over the disastrous early 70s. He had some very serious extra-curricular activities...More

A very pleasant trip around Heath’s retirement home in the Close. The guides, some of whom knew Heath personally, are engaging and informative and passionate about keeping the house open and the man’s memory alive. I suspect that younger visitors could do with more information...More

Even if you're not interested in Edward Heath, this is a lovely house with an extensive garden reaching down to the river Avon. I would highly recommend including a visit to Arundells if you are in Salisbury, particularly if you are visiting the cathedral nearby.

Well worth a visit. Gardens were beautiful and so much interesting memorabilia, much of it very personal. My only criticism would be that the house feltva bit crowded at times. Definitely recommend though!
