On the 15th of August following the citizens were gratified by a visit of the Queen, Prince Albert, and other members of the Royal family and suite, who were passing en route to Osborne from Plymouth. The Mayor and Corporation received the Royal party at the railway station, and they were escorted to the White Hart Hotel by a detachment of the 11th Hussars, who had arrived in Salisbury.

The royal guests made an inspection of the Cathedral and Chapter House, and afterwards visited the Bishop's Palace. They left Salisbury on the way to their destination at quarter past four<a name="Source2" href="#Note2">[2]</a></blockquote>
