Car & Van Rental in Salisbury?
The medieval cathedral town of Salisbury is situated in Wiltshire, a county in the south of the United Kingdom. Just a few miles from the ancient monument of Stonehenge, the city’s elaborate 13th-century cathedral is one of the most well-known in the country. Salisbury is famous for its bustling markets: the Charter Market is held twice a week, a farmers’ market is held monthly and the town’s Christmas market is a popular visitor attraction. The city is also home to three shopping centres, where most national retailers are represented, as well as an array of independent shops and boutiques. Art venues include the Salisbury Arts Centre, the Salisbury Playhouse and the Studio Theatre, while Fisherton Mill and the Young Gallery offer regular art exhibitions. The easiest way to get around and see all the sights is by renting a vehicle from one of Enterprise’s Salisbury branches. Whether you are visiting Salisbury for business or leisure, we have a choice of vehicles to suit every budget. Our range of clean, modern cars and vans ensures that you get where you need to be, when you need to be there, in style and comfort.

Attractions in Salisbury
Salisbury Cathedral is top of the list for most visitors to the city and, with the highest spire in England, this ancient building dominates the town. The cathedral is surrounded by old houses and a vast green lawn where visitors can enjoy a picnic, or even watch a cricket match! Salisbury's streets are still laid out in a medieval grid pattern, so take a walk through history and view the ancient Doom painting in St Thomas’ Church or enjoy a cream tea at one of the many cosy cafes and restaurants in the city centre. Driving is the most convenient way to get to Old Sarum, the original site of the town that is situated just a few miles away; here you can explore the ruins of a medieval abbey and the original town walls.
Places to Visit Outside Salisbury
A must-see for most visitors to Salisbury is the world famous neolithic site of Stonehenge. A new visitor centre now explains the history of the monument and other features of the wider Neolithic landscape, such as Durrington Walls. Salisbury offers numerous walking trails. For example, you can walk around Langford Lakes Nature Reserve where many rare bird species can be seen, or explore the trails through Grovely Woods, which are carpeted with bluebells in April and May. Getting behind the wheel allows you to visit several interesting National Trust properties, such as Stourhead with its lake and woodland gardens.
