A warm welcome…

Arundells, a charming and peaceful house, is located within Salisbury’s magnificent Cathedral Close and is the former home of Sir Edward Heath KG MBE, Prime Minister and Statesman.

Sir Edward bequeathed Arundells to the Charitable Foundation set up in his name following his death in 2005. He very much wanted as many people as possible to “share the beauty of Arundells” and to enjoy his diverse and very personal collection of art work, photographs, sailing memorabilia and political cartoons.

We do hope that you will enjoy your visit.
