Within Salisbury Cathedral Close is Arundells the home of former Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath.  It looks like an interesting place but unfortunately we did not have enough time to visit.

Arundells, in Salisbury’s Cathedral Close, reflects Sir Edward’s time in public office and contains his collections of: paintings, (including Wyllie, Singer Sargent, Piper, Churchill, Sickert, Augustus and Gwen John, John Nash, Lowry and many more), sailing and musical memorabilia, Oriental and European ceramics, cartoons, bronzes, Chinese and Japanese artworks, photographs and much more, just as they were when he lived there, along with access to the beautiful two acre garden. We have also opened Sir Edward’s study for the first time to the public this year, in addition to a picture filled corridor, which is on the first floor.

    Lovely property Cherie, he may have divided opinion during his time in office but he owned a beautiful house in one of those classic styles in a a wonderful setting, not dissimilar to this famous property in Sandwich in Kent the “Salutation”

      We made a wrong call going to the Salisbury museum rather than Arundells. We chose the museum because of the archaeological treasures that it boasted. Non of which was on display at the time. I found out later that was because a new wing to hold theses displays was being prepared. It opened last week!!
