Salisbury’s location earned it the nickname ‘Gateway to the West’ in Victorian times, and it remains an important intersection today, serving trains between London Waterloo and Exeter, and between Cardiff and the south coast. Situated to the west of the town centre, today’s station was constructed by the London and South Western Railway in 1902, and retains an elegant red-brick facade. Just east of it you can see the old building of the Great Western Railway’s rival station – designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel, it now houses the Salisbury Railway Social Club. Salisbury’s main attraction is its spectacular cathedral, but the city also has five rivers, regular markets and several museums and galleries. The cathedral is less than 10 minutes’ walk from the station, and is home to one of the four original Magna Carta manuscripts. If you're looking to take the train to Stonehenge, the world-famous prehistoric stone circle, is just eight miles from the city and easily reached on local buses.
