Wheelchair Walk Salisbury

Start Central car park

Parking free for blue badge holders.

Proceed towards the river and town
You will come to some shops on your right and the river on the left, bear left (not straight on under the archway) into St Thomas square.

With St Thomas church in front of you turn right, proceed down the High Street through the pedestrianized part towards the High Street Gate to the Cathedral Close.

Enter the Cathedral Close, continue straight ahead past the Cathedral onto a path alongside the road with the Cathedral Works yard on your left.

Exit the Cathedral Close through the Harnham Gate and proceed along De Vaux Place.
Turn right onto St. Nicolas Road, proceed over the river, past the Rose & Crown Hotel and up the hill to the main road.

Turn right onto the pavement alongside the main road (not the best part of the walk, the road is busy and noisy), when you come to a pedestrian crossing by the traffic lights there are 2 routes you may take –
1 Turn right into the park and proceed diagonally across the park to the Town Path by The Old Mill Hotel. This rout is across the grass and may not be suitable in if the ground is wet.

2 Proceed a short distance further on the main road and bear right into Lower Street, a little way along Lower Street cross the road into the car park of the Church Hall. Across the car park there is a path that takes you through the churchyard of St. George’s church and back to the road. Cross the road onto the Town Path.

Continue on the Town Path past the Old Mill Hotel, there are views of the Cathedral to your right.

At the end of the Town Path turn right onto Mill Road and continue until you reach the High Street, turn left and retrace the first part of the walk back to the car park.
