28 roads in the city centre will be shut on Saturday for the parade, with further closures relating to Hudson's Field.

Hosting the National Armed Forces event is a huge operation and for security reasons Wiltshire Council have to close a number of roads.

The majority surround the parade which will see Salisbury welcome a Royal visitor, Princess Anne.

These roads will be shut from 6am until 2pm on the 29th June:

It will be led by Household Mounted Division and will finish with the British Army units which hold the Freedom of Salisbury.

Regular and reserve personnel, veterans, cadets and blue light services will take part in the parade as well as military horses, working dogs and vehicles.
