The cathedral city of Salisbury lies in the county of Wiltshire, on the verges of Salisbury Plain. As a settlement that has existed since Roman times, Salisbury has many architectural examples of its long history, the most prominent and iconic of which is its ancient cathedral that has stood in its present location since the thirteenth century.
The cathedral's clock is the oldest of its type in the country, having been installed at the end of the fourteenth century. All aspects of the city's heritage, including the cathedral itself, are extensively covered at nearby Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum which is housed in the listed King's House building.
Because the city is at the point where the Wessex Main Line and and the West of England Main Line intersect it acts as a major regional travel interchange.
