The city of Salisbury is located in the county of Wiltshire and is described as the City in the Countryside. The city is home to many timbered buildings, an early English Gothic Cathedral, home to copy of the Magna Carta, a bustling market, museums and some of England's finest houses. Located within the cathedral Close there is Arundells, Mompesson House, The Rifles Military Museum and the Salisbury Museum all of which provide many hours of fun for the family. On the edge of the city there is Salisbury Racecourse. In a beautiful setting the racecourse provides around 15 days of racing each year throughout the summer months. The racecourse attracts top jockeys and some of the best horses in the country. In 2012 Salisbury was awarded Purple Flag status which is awarded to towns or cities that offer a 'gold standard' for their centres at night. It is a standard that means they are welcoming to all and offer safe ways for people to travel home, provide a good mix of venues and have lower crime rates and lower levels of anti-social behaviour.
