Getting around

Salisbury is very well connected, and the ring road makes it easy to get from one side to the other. It’s on the A36 between Southampton and Bath, and it’s close to the A303 (joining the M3 at Basingstoke) for London, or the South West. Train travel is a great option to and from Salisbury too. It’s on the South West mainline for trains between Exeter and London Waterloo, as well as the Wessex mainline between Cardiff and Portsmouth. The Salisbury Reds provides the local bus service, with a bus depot right in the city centre – great name and great service.
