In the shadow of the ancient castle of Old Sarum and close by the banks of the river Avon, the AR Centre is situated in the midst of a vibrant, new housing and industrial development on the outskirts of Salisbury. The lively city of Salisbury is located in the south-east of Wiltshire, near the edge of Salisbury Plain. It sits at the confluence of five rivers: the Nadder, Ebble, Wylye, Bourne and Avon, which flows towards the sea at Christchurch, Dorset. Salisbury boasts a thriving market, an outstanding cathedral, several museums, a racecourse and the renown Odstock Hospital.
