Salisbury Moving Company

Schepens is a Well-Known Salisbury Moving Company

The last five years have been quite tumultuous for the cathedral city of Salisbury. Back in 2015 it emerged blinking onto the world stage when Lonely Planet placed it 7th in their list 3 top 10 cities, ranking it higher than Vienna or Toronto.

Then, in 2018 it found itself in the media glare once more, this time because of the horrendous Novichok poisonings which closed the city down for weeks on end.

Visit the city now and it’s hard to believe that it was at the centre of the world’s news less than a year ago. The cathedral sits serene, the medieval streets are crowded with tourists, and local businesses appear unruffled by the drama. It’s this calm, unhurried quality which shines through when residents talk about what makes Salisbury a special place to live.


Here are 4 great reasons to consider a move to Salisbury in 2019:

1. It’s Quintessentially English

John Constable’s famous painting of Salisbury Cathedral From the Meadows was painted in 1831 but the cathedral still exudes the same charm. This is a 21st century city with a medieval centre where the houses are a delightful jumble of historic architectural styles. And surrounding the city is mile upon mile of glorious Wiltshire countryside.

2. It’s Possible to Commute from London

The train journey between Salisbury and London Waterloo takes – on average – 1.5 hours, and they run every 30 minutes. This is a popular commute so trains are crowded and a 12 month season ticket is expensive, costing just under £6,000. People who do the commute say it’s a pretty reliable service, but 5 days a week is exhausting.

3. 2019 is a Good Time to Buy Property in Salisbury

Local Estate Agents in Salisbury have reported a fall in property prices following the dramatic coverage of the city in 2018. News of city-wide searches for traces of the nerve agent have proved off-putting for buyers, resulting in an 8% drop in property. Salisbury sees this as a blip in the local market, but it creates an opportunity for buyers looking to move from London.

4. The City Has a Choice of Great Schools

The Sunday Times Good Schools Guide, 2019 has given 3 Salisbury schools top marks this year. The Godolphin School is Southwest Independent School of the Year, thanks to its excellent exam results. South Wilts Grammar School and Bishop Wordsworth’s School are also marked out for commendation. They’re both included in the top 10 best schools in the South West.
