Sarum Lodge is a delightful development of 47 one and two bedroom retirement apartments located in the heart of the medieval cathedral city of Salisbury.
Set within the city’s historic streets, Sarum Lodge is perfectly placed for the wealth of independent shops, High Street stores, restaurants and cafés which the city has to offer. Old George Mall is located just off the High Street and is home to a number of high street names whilst the historic Cross Keys Arcade has an eclectic range of shops and restaurants to explore.
A Charter Market is held in the historic Market Place each Tuesday and Saturday, selling fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, fish, clothing, furniture and homewares.
The Salisbury Artisan Market is held on the first Sunday of every month and the city also hosts regular vintage markets, continental markets and a Christmas Market.
Salisbury is dominated by one of England’s finest Gothic Cathedrals with the tallest spire in Britain. The Cathedral is home to the best preserved Magna Carta manuscript and holds over 1,000 services, exhibition and events every year.
The Salisbury International Arts Festival is held in late May to early June with outstanding performances of theatre, dance, film and music, alongside literary events and visual arts. Salisbury Playhouse is one of Britain’s leading producing theatres commissioning and producing new plays from and inspired by the South West.

The city’s many parks and green spaces are a perfect place to relax and enjoy wildlife and there are a number of footpaths around the city where you can enjoy a short stroll or longer walk such as along the Avon Valley Path.
Salisbury Racecourse stages a number of meetings during the summer months at a picturesque downland course on the outskirts of the city and Stonehenge, a UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the best known prehistoric monuments in Europe, lies just north of Salisbury.
