I didn't go inside the house as I had my dog but spent a good 30 mins mooching around the garden, enjoying the solitude. Must see on your day in the close

Superb setting and collection of Edward Heath’s memoirs. Irene one of the room guides is superb as are many of the other very knowledgable guides. One of the best places to visit in Salisbury. Reserve two hours plus for a very worthwhile visit.

Walking to Salisbury Museum you pass by Arundells - the former home of the tale Prime Minister Ted Heath. Stunning house set in beautiful grounds opposite the Cathedral.

£5 for the gardens. I had a private tour for me and my mate. Cost £12 each. We were lucky with the tour guide.
