To help safeguard the health and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteer stewards, it has been decided to close Arundells until further notice.
Our intention is to re-open as soon as it is considered appropriate to do so. Please revisit our website for up to date information.
Thank you for your understanding & support at this difficult time.
Last update: 16 March 2020
With paintings by Churchill and Sargent, Chinese ceramics from Chairman Mao, David Lloyd George’s writing desk and memorabilia from Nixon and Castro, Arundells is the former home of Sir Edward Heath KG MBE, Prime Minister and Statesman. Located within Salisbury’s magnificent Cathedral Close, the house is one of Salisbury’s most charming destinations.
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.
