The Old Sarum is a historical site in the cathedral city of Salisbury in England.

The evidence which is exhibited at this site can be traced back to 3000 BC. The hill, on which Old Sarum is situated, lies about 2 miles from the modern city of Salisbury. This English Heritage site was a hill fort at the time of its establishment. The fort was oval in shape with a length of 1,300 ft and width of 1,200 ft. Just like historical forts, Old Sarum was bordered by ditches and banks.

The castle was surrounded by several other constructions. Visitors can see a castle well and the remains of a cathedral. The castle was originally built in 1092, but was destroyed. The larger new castle was rebuilt in 1190. The castle also lies in ruins just like the other buildings on this site. The hill overlooks beautiful Salisbury city. One can see the historical cathedral in the city as well.
