Taking a day trip from London to Salisbury is easy and highly popular. The city not only has several attractions of its own, including Salisbury Cathedral, it is also the most popular way of visiting Stonehenge. 

It is possible to take a guided coach tour of Salisbury and Stonehenge from London, but if you prefer to travel independently then making the journey to Salisbury and from there to Stonehenge (which is about ten miles north of the city) is the best thing to do.

You can drive to Salisbury from central London in about two hours, if you've hired a rental car for your trip, but if you have no car then rail is the best option as it is only about 90 minutes by fast train direct to Salisbury from London. There are a few buses a day but they are infrequent and the journey time and departure times don’t make it a convenient way for visiting Salisbury. 

The Best Things to Do in Salisbury

The Best Things to Do in Salisbury include visiting the 13th-century Salisbury Cathedral, which has the tallest spire in the UK, the Parish Church of St Thomas, much of which dates from the 15th century, the Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum, and Mompesson House, built in 1701 and used in the 1995 film adaptation of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility. For more information visit our Best Things to Do in Salisbury page.
