At the weekend, Shaun and I decided to go to the train station and pick a destination at random and go on a Saturday adventure. Salisbury was the first place which came up. It was only an hour away from us, the weather was sunny, so it sounded like the perfect day out.
Before we knew it, we had arrived in the city and found ourselves outside Salisbury Cathedral.
A few obligatory photographs outside the cathedral.
The River Avon flows right through the city and looked so pretty in the February colours.
This is Salisbury’s Love-Lock Bridge. Not as romantic as Paris, but still sweet.
It wasn’t long before we were thinking about lunch (as usual, hehe). We picked Wildwood just outside the market as the menu sounded delicious.
I was feeling in a vegetarian mood so I went for:with pesto mayonnaise. As always, I upgraded to sweet potato fries. Amazing!
After lunch, we took a stroll around Salisbury outdoor market, this place sells everything: fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, cheeses, eggs, vacuum cleaners, carpets, clothes, shoes, jewellery, kitchenware, wooden furniture, like everything. It’s open every Tuesday and Saturday and worth a visit if you are in the area.
I always love the colours and aromas in a busy vibrant market.
Who doesn’t like a little bit of homemade fudge? Roly’s Fudge originally came from Devon 30 years ago and is made from all natural ingredients. You can buy everything from Vanilla Clotted Cream, Chocolate or Rum ‘n’ Raisin to more traditional flavours. There is something for everyone here.
After we had looked around the city, we fancied a quieter walk along the river enjoying the scenery.
The cathedral was never far away – at least we knew how to find our way back to the station again.
Peaceful surroundings just outside of the city.
Salisbury has a good mix of everything – vibrant colourful markets, cultural Cathedrals and peaceful river walks. We will definitely be coming back here again sometime. especially as it’s just a short train ride from home. Have you been to Salisbury? Do you prefer the busier city life or quieter countryside?
