    A useful guide if you’re looking to move to the Salisbury area or if you’re looking to relocate within Salisbury:

    Living in Salisbury

    It’s been ranked as one of the top 10 places to live in the UK 2022, but what do residents say about living in Salisbury? Schepens is a leading provider of removals to Salisbury, so we’ve asked clients who’ve moved into the city how they find it to live in day by day. Here are some of the responses we’ve had from them.

    1. A City That’s More Like a Town

    It’s got all the grandeur of a city – specifically the cathedral – but really it’s no bigger than a market town. International tourism means that Salisbury provides good shopping, with High St brands. And there are coffee shops and restaurants to suit every purse. There are also excellent markets and you can walk to anywhere in the city – so no need for buses and taxis to get places.

    2. A Brilliant International Arts Festival

    If you move to Salisbury from London, there’s a fear that you’ll lose your connection with the arts. Thanks to the Salisbury Playhouse there’s a good and varied offering of theatre, music and entertainment all year round. And the International Arts Festival at the end of May is excellent. It’s all over the city, and offers a range of activities for kids and adults – really makes the city come to life.

    3. Not Much Urban Vibe

    People tend to move to Salisbury because of its location, its cathedral, and its tranquillity. All very well if your kids are young. As they get older, however, they may find Salisbury lacking in nightlife and diversity. This isn’t a place that moves with the times, or embraces change easily. For many of its residents, this is its charm.

    4. An Expensive Place to Live

    House prices are relatively expensive in Salisbury, and its location means that local transport is also fairly pricey. If you’re planning to commute to London, an annual season ticket will cost you over £5,000. If you’re content to live and work in the city, it’s possible to keep your costs down. If, however, you’re looking to spread your wings, it can be costly. Clients advise that you budget realistically before moving to the city.

    5. A Glorious Place to Bring Up Kids

    The families that we’ve helped with their removals to Salisbury have no regrets whatsoever. There’s a range of excellent schools to choose from, many of them faith-based. And the opportunities for walks, rambles and activities are second-to-none. One client told us that even after a few years the beauty of the city is an ongoing delight, which her family still appreciates every day.

    Schepens is a leading UK removals company offering local Salisbury removals. We’ve a great reputation for providing stress-free moves, and our locally recruited removals teams are professionally trained to support clients at every stage. We’re happy to share our local knowledge, and offer suggestions regarding the best routes in and out of the city, and the optimum time of day to move.

    Best Places to Live Around Salisbury

    Best Places to Live Around Salisbury

    Moving to Salisbury is – without doubt – an opportunity to dust off the city smog and embrace the bucolic delights of Wiltshire. But it’s not for everyone. Salisbury is a small city – it feels more like a town. This means that houses in the most popular areas of the city tend to be hard to come by. Many of our movers tend, therefore, to look to the towns and villages in the surrounding area.

    There’s a whole range of stunning locations to choose from. The Schepens removals team chose five different types of setting, to help give you a feel of what’s possible.

    1. Lyndhurst (20 miles from Salisbury)

    Just half an hour’s drive from the city centre, Lyndhurst transports you into another world. It’s a busy, lively village located right in the heart of the New Forest. Because of its location in the National Park, Lyndhurst has retained its period charm, whilst offering a good range of resources to movers. There are excellent schools, and a range of properties, many with good-sized gardens.

    2. Wilton (4 miles from Salisbury)

    If you’re looking for a market town close to the centre of Salisbury, Wilton has great potential. It dates back to the 8th century and was Wiltshire capital in the 9th century. Wilton made its name making luxury carpets, but it’s now a thriving centre with a great choice of shops and excellent amenities. This handsome-looking locale sits on the edge of the stunning Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs.

    3. Fordingbridge (11 miles from Salisbury)

    If you’re tempted by the New Forest but want to avoid the summer influx of tourists, take a look at Fordingbridge. It’s located in the north-western corner of the New Forest and even in the height of summer it’s not overrun. Set on the River Avon, a medieval seven arched bridged provides a glorious welcome, and the town is full of independent cafes, and shops which keep it busy throughout the year.

    4. Downton (6 miles from Salisbury)

    Downton is a lively village which boasts evidence of ongoing human habitation for 7,000 years, at least. It now combines the very best of the old and the new. Located in the Avon Valley, on the edge of the New Forest, it’s a stunning place to live. It’s also a flourishing community with plenty of shops, leisure facilities and local societies. Every year the village hosts Cuckoo Fair which attracts up to 20,000 visitors.

    5. Romsey (16 miles from Salisbury)

    Another historic market town, this time over the county border in Hampshire. Romsey is considered by many to be an attractive alternative to Winchester – with far more affordable properties. There’s a bustle and confidence about Romsey, bolstered by its growing array of excellent restaurants and independents. It provides an excellent choice of properties, and there’s a good range of schools on offer.

Both the collection and the subsequent delivery were made almost pleasurable so once again many many thanks to all at Schepens and would I recommend them……… Absolutely and without reservation.”

    Salisbury Removals | Moving to Salisbury

    Moving to Salisbury from London

    Moving to Salisbury from London

    Moving to Salisbury from London has got a whole lot easier since flexible working. Schepens has certainly been busier these past couple of years, and it’s always a delight to us when families are able to make the move they’ve been planning for so long. Whether it’s a bigger house, with a garden, that you’re longing for, walks in the country, or trips to the beach, Salisbury is completely different lifestyle for families.

    Schepens is a local moving company that has been helping families with removals to Wiltshire for over 100 years now. The beautiful cathedral city of Salisbury has always proved a powerful magnet for London movers – but how do they cope with the change of pace? We asked a few of our movers who are now happily settled in the city.

    Thought I’d Miss London, But I Don’t

    “I think that when you make a small move, like from one area of London to another, you’re really aware of the things you miss. But when you make a massive change, you just embrace all the new possibilities. Where do I start – there’s the cathedral, medieval streets to explore, markets every other day of the week, tramping through the Wiltshire countryside – Stonehenge!”

    It’s Great Place to Bring Up Children

    “There are really outstanding schools in Salisbury, and nowhere is a ‘bad’ choice. Apart from that, though, our children have really responded to growing up in a beautiful setting, with low crime, and a slower pace. Having a garden has made a REAL difference to all our well-being, and we do more things together now. They have their own patches to grow veggies – which feels great.”

    Family Outings are Easy

    “Last year we walked the entire Avon Valley path – bit-by-bit – which was a brilliant thing for us to do together. We never did stuff like that in London, because it was always a faff, and we had to sort out parking, trains, all that. Here we just jump in the car and go to the beach, or the New Forest, or Avebury and on, and on.”

    Plenty of Places to Eat, Drink Coffee & Shop

    “I did wonder whether I’d be constantly on the train back to London for shopping or catch ups with friends. Actually, it’s been the other way round. Our friends prefer to spend the weekend with us, and we have a great choice of restaurants, country pubs, indie coffee shops. We do miss the museums, and theatres, so we make a few trips over the year, but we always love getting home afterwards.”
