The Red Lion Hotel Salisbury

Step into history at The Red Lion Hotel Salisbury, where we’ve been welcoming guests for over 800 years!

We proudly hold the title of Europe’s oldest purpose-built hotel; unlike many others, our building has always been a hotel rather than being converted.

We’re certainly one of the most unique hotels in Salisbury city centre, if not the whole of Wiltshire.


We’re located right in the heart of Salisbury city centre, just a five minute walk from Salisbury Cathedral.

If you’re planning a Peppa Pig World break at Paulton’s Park or looking for a hotel near Stonehenge, The Red Lion Hotel is the ideal place to stay as we’re just a short drive away.

Our romantic hotel is able to accommodate weddings for up to 120 guests and is a licensed venue, making us your perfect wedding venue in Salisbury.

With 60 feature bedrooms to choose from, the most famous afternoon tea in Salisbury and a traditional restaurant and bar that’s been serving guests and local residents since the 13th century, we’re the perfect place to stay in Salisbury.
