The Old Sarum is the site of the first settlement in Salisbury, England. It is currently uninhabited but was the site of a settlement for many centuries BC to around the 14th century and it was shaped by the Romans, Normans and Saxons. The Old Sarum is situated on a hill so provides wonderful views out over the local area. The site has remains of buildings that existed during the times that it was occupied such as the Royal Castle.
The site is a 20-25 minute walk away from ‘Salisbury’ train station. If travelling by car, there are a couple of car parks close to the Old Sarum.
