By Car

Car parking at Sarum College is very limited and is available on a first-come first-served basis. We have one space reserved for disabled parking. Alternatively there is a small car park within the Cathedral Close (£7), along with others in the city centre.

If you do come by car The High Street entrance is the only way to drive into the Close. Beware – satellite navigation systems sometimes suggest St. Ann’s gate, which offers pedestrian-only access. Some systems are more effective when “North Walk” is entered as the street name rather than “The Close”. Alternatively it may be easier to use the post code SP1 2PF for the High Street Post Office, so you are directed straight to the High Street Gate.
