Travel


Driving

Salisbury lies on the intersection of the A30, the A36 and the A338 and is at the end of the A343, A345, A354 and A360. If you are using a GPS to navigate, the Cathedral’s postcode is SP1 2EJ. From London, take the M3 then the A303 and the A345, approximately a 1½ - 2 hour drive.

Parking

Limited parking is available within the Cathedral Close at a fixed cost of £7.00 for the whole day (this includes disabled car park spaces) you will also receive a voucher for a free cup of tea or coffee from our Refectory Restaurant and 10% off in the Cathedral shop. The Cathedral Close is private land and we use revenue from our parking fees to upkeep the roads. If you are visiting for a shorter period of time you will find the park and ride sites (currently free to park) or city centre car parks more economical.

The closest parking to the Cathedral Close is at the Old George Mall and Lush House car park. The Central car park is a 10-minute level walk away. Alternatively use one of the five Park and Ride sites.


Bus or Coach

Salisbury has regular bus services from Southampton, Bournemouth, Ringwood, Swindon, Marlborough, Andover and Amesbury as well as coach services from Bath, Oxford, Brighton, Bristol and Cambridge.

Regional travel is serviced by More Bus - for national travel contact National Express Coaches.

General information

All music will be provided on the day. You will be expected to have learnt music made available in advance of the visit. No time in the rehearsal will be given to note-bashing this music. We will spend more time looking at music introduced on the day. We regret that copyright does not always allow us to make all music available beforehand.

Cassocks and surplices will be provided on the day (if you are new, please send your approx height and build to Elizabeth at secretary@harsnettchoir.org).

Please wear quiet black shoes and black socks/tights as these might show under your cassock.

We do limit the number of people we can take to fit the stalls and maintain balance between the parts. Places are assigned on a first come first served basis. You will be informed promptly if you have a space. Please do not arrange non-refundable travel or accommodation until after this time. If you are unsure or need to know immediately, please contact Ed at md@harsnettchoir.org

We will not be arranging group accommodation for this visit.
