Friendly and Experienced Removals to Salisbury

2018 was a testing time for the ancient city of Salisbury. It will always be remembered for being the year of the Novichok poisoning attack which claimed a life, and closed down the town centre twice. A less community-focused city might have crumpled in the face of such adverse circumstances. But Salisbury weathered both the traumatic events, and the global press attention, admirably and is now virtually back to normal as one of the leading UK tourist centres.

Salisbury – Best Place to Live in UK in 2019

One year on, Salisbury has been rewarded for its fortitude in the face of adversity. The Sunday Times has named it as the best place to live in the UK. In the report Helen Davies of the Sunday Times stated:

“Salisbury has shown real collective spirit in dealing with a chemical attack that saw the cathedral city become the centre of world headlines for all the wrong reasons. There are still parts of the city where the clean-up continues, but to bounce back and be even stronger is a sure sign of a very special community, which is one of the reasons we have chosen Salisbury as the best place to live in Britain in 2019.”

A ‘Divinely Attractive and Welcoming Place’

The report doesn’t only concentrate on the events of last year. They also note the many qualities that make Salisbury a hugely popular removals location for families from London and across the UK. The top 3 reasons for removals to Salisbury are:

1. A Beautiful, Compact Centre

The centre in Salisbury is defined by its iconic 13th century cathedral. This is the spot that tourists make for but, to be honest, Salisbury is an architectural treasure trove in all directions. It’s possibly the only city in the UK where you can enjoy your Nandos in a medieval building, and watch films in a 15th century structure!

2. An Easy Commute

It takes just 90 minutes to travel between London Waterloo and Salisbury, and there’s 30 trains on average every weekday. An annual season ticket, including travelcard, costs £6,500. Parking is available at the station. If you prefer to drive, Salisbury is well connected. The M3 is close by and a clear run takes you into London in around the same time as the train.

3. A Choice of Spectacular Locations

Salisbury centre offers a beautiful, convenient location with all the resources you need just a short walk away. For a more rural location, however, the villages around Salisbury are some of the best places to live in Wiltshire. The larger villages such as Downton, or Winterslow, offer excellent amenities for those tackling rural life for the first time. The villages to the north of the city, such as the Wallops or Winterbornes are ideal for commuters because of their proximity to Grateley station.
