There was no specific incident in Salisbury that caused this situation.
Very few train stations in the UK now offer left luggage facilities because of the risk of the luggage containing explosives (although as far as I know this fear has so far been unfounded).
Please see message 1 for our advice on this.
Yes the Cat Tavern still does left luggage. £3 per item. It's open early in the morning and closes late at night.
Great news! Thanks for the reply as this means we can see the sites and continue on to Bath without woryring about our luggage.
I suspect that the "real" reason that stations do not keep left luggage is that they would have to employ more staff which these days is regarded with horror!
More staff = better customer service?
We'll be traveling in March 2014. These posts are a few years old. Any update on if this is still an option?
