There are plenty of lovable restaurants around the city to wine and dine in but how about something different?

Here's our top ten of things to do in and around Salisbury...

HEAD TO THE MOST ROMANTIC VILLAGE

The village of Lover is nestled within the New Forest National Park.

Take a walk through the countryside surrounding the village and make sure you get a selfie in front of the world-famous Lover village sign.

TAKE IN BREATHTAKING VIEWS OF SALISBURY

Climb 332 steps through the Salisbury Cathedral’s secret roof spaces to the base of the Cathedral spire to see spectacular views of medieval Salisbury City.

It's a view like none other and will be something you and your loved one won't forget.

VISIT OUR HISTORICAL SITES

Wiltshire has some great places to offer for a bit of history and a lovely walk:

STONEHENGE

Who wouldn't want to check out the historic stones

Why not try something a bit different and go glamping this year near the site?

Stonehenge glamping pods are on the edge of Salisbury Plain, meaning you can make a day and night of it...

OLD WARDOUR CASTLE 

The picturesque ruins are famous for the setting of Kevin Costner's Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves and the castle even has its own chapel where you can get married...

It's a great location to check out some of our local history and engaged couples might want to consider it to host their wedding.

OLD SARUM

Weather dependant, the views of Salisbury Plain from the Old Castle are awe-inspiring.

A handheld walk around the site, wrapped up warm, will be pretty sweet!

GET YOUR PAINT ON

If you don't fancy traipsing around outside, sit inside Splash of Colour Pottery Painting Cafe in Salisbury and make something loving for your partner.

Whether your creative or not (beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right?!), it'll be something fun to do and it's in the warm!

CRANK THE GEARS UP

Have you got a taste for a bit of speed?

Instead of sitting down for a three course dinner, why not take on a few laps at Wessex Raceway on the Blandford Road?

It's sure to fire things up a bit!

EMBRACE THE GREATS

If in doubt - sitting down to watch one of the new films out is always a good shout.

There's a few good films on in the evening - check them all out at Odeon on New Canal.
