Superb setting and collection of Edward Heath’s memoirs. Irene one of the room guides is superb as are many of the other very knowledgable guides. One of the best places to visit in Salisbury. Reserve two hours plus for a very worthwhile visit.

The attraction of Arundells is that it remains very largely as it was when Ted Heath lived there for the last 20 years of his life. It is not a particularly grand house, but it is chock full of memorabilia.In the entrance hall there is...More

Walking to Salisbury Museum you pass by Arundells - the former home of the tale Prime Minister Ted Heath. Stunning house set in beautiful grounds opposite the Cathedral.

The last day before they close for the winter. Really interesting house and inhabitant. Saddest part was the bows of the yacht which sank.

I took a little persuading but Arundells really is a worthwhile visit. Not at all the ossified remnants of a life but something relevant, very personal and all the more insightful for it. The character of an honourable man, driven by the convictions forged in...More

Sir Edward Heath was a person with a great sense of humour as I am sure his friends will document. Self-deprication is a term usually used to mask genuine humour and pride in your own portrayal. The stairways of his beautiful home are lined with...More
