Salisbury Cathedral

Breakfast was buffet style and lived up to expectations from our previous visit to the White Hart. After breakfast, we loaded the car and made our way to the Salisbury Museum. We had been disappointed on our last visit to find the archaeological section closed for refurbishment and due to reopen just after we returned home. The museum’s archaeological collection is now housed in the Wessex Gallery and it was well worth the wait. We spent most of our morning browsing around the collections.

We had a cup of tea in the cathedral and visited the cathedral shop before returning to the hotel to freshen up ahead of our journey home. A timely missed turning led us to Marlborough which was the perfect opportunity to stop for a lunch time treat of lemon cake.  We then retraced our steps and picked up the correct route to continue our journey home.

The weather was lovely and I had planned a nice meal on the patio but  Mr C was feeling a little delicate following our previous evenings meal. I had to improvise and think up a dinner for one.

    Just catching up, Cherie. Sounds like a very pleasant break in my part of the country

  2. Salisbury Museum?
    Don’t think I have been there.
    Was it free? ;)

    I went to see Salisbury Cathedral, it was some £8?
    Then an old lady told me you could get in free if you told them you wanted to pray!
    Ha ha…

      It is not free but we got in half price due to being English Heritage members.

      The Wessex Gallery alone is well worth the entrance fee ;-)

  3. Have so enjoyed reading about your break in such a lovely part of the country. I haven’t been to Stone Henge for years and years.

    I’ve so enjoyed your posts about Wells! I would love to visit to see the ruins alone, never mind all the other lovely things to see in the area.
