One of the least known yet most important buildings in Salisbury is the former Bishops' Palace.
First built when the city was established in the 1220s, it was home to successive bishops for over 700 years until becoming the Cathedral School in 1946.
This book traces the evolution of the palace, chronicles the most important bishops who lived there and sets the story within the relevant contexts of English history.
It also describes the other (numerous) palaces of the bishops of Salisbury and catalogues the portraits that have hung in the Salisbury Palace.
