It’s very straightforward, driving from London to Salisbury. It’s a distance of about 90 miles, with roughly 2/3 of the drive being on motorways. It should take around two hours under normal traffic conditions, although naturally it will take longer at busier times of the day.
From central London you should head west on the M4, exiting at Junction 4b onto the M25, going south. Leave the M25 at Junction 12, taking the M3 towards Southampton. Leave the M3 at junction 8 onto the A303, following the signs for Salisbury.
When you reach Salisbury follow the signs for the Town Centre and Parking. There are several inexpensive car parks near the centre, close enough to be able to walk everywhere.
Car hire or rental is not recommended as a car isn't needed for visiting Salisbury. Taking the train is by far the best option. Only drive to Salisbury if you plan to visit other places, or have already rented a car for other reasons.
