    The Guildhall Cells and Tunnel Tours

    Tickets are now available for The Guildhall Cells and Tunnel Tours running from Thursday 19th September until Saturday 21st September.

    Salisbury City Council are hosting the tours as part of the Heritage Open Days, an annual celebration of England's architecture and culture. They allow visitors free access to historical landmarks that are either not usually open to the public, or would normally charge an entrance fee to visitors. It also includes tours, events and activities related to architecture and culture.

    This year, The Guildhall's prison cells and lower tunnel will be open, giving you the opportunity to look around areas which are not usually open to the public. The tours will be running at 10am and 2pm each day by the superb Salisbury Blue Badge guides.

    All tours need to be booked in advance due to limited numbers via the following links:

      Redevelopment of 30-36 Fisherton Street
      At the meeting of the Salisbury City Council's Planning Committee on Monday 12 Aug 2019, the City Council was pleased to consider a new planning application for 30-36 Fisherton Street.

      After some debate this application was supported by the majority of the Committee. The Committee believe that this latest iteration of the application is more in keeping, given the height and mass of the proposed development, which reflects a number of buildings within Fisherton Street.

      The Committee were also pleased to note that some thought has been given to space between the neighbouring buildings for example the Salisbury United Reform Church.

      The City Council welcomes the possibility of a new library and cafe that will benefit local residents of all ages and an affordable hotel to encourage more visitors to visit Salisbury for more than just a few hours. Furthermore, securing this investment in the city is beneficial to the City’s long term viability, and crucially, our Library service is recognised as a very important asset for the residents of Salisbury and to our neighbouring towns and villages.
