There is plenty to see and do on this short walk from Salisbury station. Starting out along the wonderful River Avon riverside path, it passes through the Avon Valley Nature Reserve to Old Sarum, a spectacularly located Iron Age fort with views over the medieval city of Salisbury. The route returns to the city's chequerboard layout through Market Square, along the High Street and into Cathedral Close, with its historic houses and magnificent 13th-century cathedral.
