SALISBURY Civic Society will be exploring three hotels as part of its Historic Open Weekend which gets underway next Thursday.

They will lead tours around the Cross Keys Chequer and the Cathedral Hotel on Thursday; Antelope Chequer and The Cloisters Inn on Friday; and the White Hart Chequer and the White Hart Hotel on Saturday.

It is hoped the tours will demonstrate the history of Salisbury through its inns and public houses.

The tours will be at 10.30am and 3pm on each of the days. Tickets are free but must be collected in advance from the tourist information centre.
