People coming into the city are now greeted by new signs that show some of Salisbury's most popular landmarks.

Salisbury City Council has installed new signs to welcome visitors and residents.. 

They feature silhouettes of iconic buildings in the city including:

  • The Cathedral
  • Poultry Cross
  • The War Memorial
  • Some of the major churches

"Welcoming traders, visitors and pilgrims since 1227" features underneath the images, with them also celebrating the twinned cities of Xanten and Saintes, as well as the sister Salisbury cities in North Carolina and Maryland

They were designed and produced by Salisbury company Signs in Motion, with the help of officers and councillors. 

Chair of the Environmental Working Group, Cllr John Farquhar said:

"I am delighted with the fresh new artwork for the welcome signs, which reflects the beautiful and historical nature of our city. It has been a great team effort and we hope the signs will make an excellent impression on the visitors to our city".

Some have already been installed, with others to be put in place over the coming weeks.
