Salisbury City Guides

The Salisbury City Guides are a group of fully qualified Blue Badge guides who are passionate about sharing the city’s history, myths and legends.

With so much to see in Salisbury, one of the Blue Badge guides will help you to make the best use of your time in here. 

Their daily Salisbury City Walk introduces the main highlights of the city. They explain the history of the medieval city centre, showcase the cathedral and St Thomas’ church with its world-famous Doom painting and even the store where the Duke of Buckingham’s ghost haunts the Blue Boar Inn.

The Cathedral Close Walk gives visitors the chance to discover the magnificent architecture and interesting characters who lived in the fine old houses around Salisbury Cathedral since the 13century.

But if you prefer the spookier side of Salisbury, join the guides on their Classic Ghost Tour as they search for Salisbury’s secretive ghosts while explaining spine chilling tales of hauntings, witches, wizards and gruesome happenings from the city’s past. Bespoke tours are also available.
