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!

I didn't go inside the house as I had my dog but spent a good 30 mins mooching around the garden, enjoying the solitude. Must see on your day in the close

£5 for the gardens. I had a private tour for me and my mate. Cost £12 each. We were lucky with the tour guide.

It is preferable for the guided tours so as avoid disappontment. Some days we have large group tours and if you were to turn up you may have to wait. Please call on the day (or before) and we will fit you in to a convenient... More
