Top 100 Attractions Review

If you've ever wondered what it would be like to visit an ex Prime Ministers home, well after taking a visit to Arundells, you won't have to wonder anymore! Arundells is a beautiful and ornate building, that initially had me standing outside its gates for almost twenty minutes, as I gaspingly reminded myself where I actually was. Centuries of history lies within its walls and even long before Sir Ted Heaths time here at the house, people of some stature would of crossed its threshold, although back then, Salisbury wouldn't of been the hustle and bustle it is today. I closed my eyes and, quite easily imagined the many horses and carriages that would of pulled in through its gates. I really enjoyed my time here and if you've got time, I seriously recommend taking the time to wander around it's beautiful yet simple gardens, with its few sculptures and statues.

Arundells

Arundells, the home of former Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath, is situated in the beautiful Cathedral Close in Salisbury.

Arundells is surrounded by a beautiful two-acre walled garden stretching down to the Rivers Avon and Nadder, with perfect views of Salisbury Cathedral. A separate exhibition room features an annual programme of exhibitions related to Sir Edward’s life and interests. General entry and guided tour days available. Special events are held throughout the year, please visit our website for further details.
