Hemingsby House is a Grade I listed, 14th-century house in the north-west corner of the Salisbury Cathedral Close overlooking Choristers’ Green. It is an unusual building in that it was constructed as one house but is composed of two parts of different architectural styles giving the impression of two separate buildings. In modern times it has been altered to provide two separate houses. It is generally believed to have been built by Alexander de Hemyngsby in the 14th century, the first recorded warden of the Choristers’ School in 1322. Apart from a chapel constructed earlier and an extension of the 18th century most of the building was reconstructed in the middle of the 15th century by Nicholas Upton. He was succeeded by Thomas Fideon who completed the reconstruction and whose name appears on some architectural decorations in the house.

Wren Hall is a Grade I listed building in Salisbury Cathedral Close, Wiltshire. Situated on the west side of Choristers' Green it was originally part of the attached Braybrook House. A rebuilding was commissioned and funded by Sir Stephen Fox, an alumnus of the Cathedral School, and carried out in 1714 by Thomas Naish, Clerk of Works to the Cathedral to provide a classroom and further dormitories for the cathedral choristers. It has little proven connection with Christopher Wren except that in its style it provides a suitable memorial to that great Wiltshire born architect. After the removal of the Choir School the College of Sarum St Michael acquired it for a short period until it became the diocesan archive repository. In the 1980`s it was used as the Salisbury Cathedral Spire Appeal office and in the past few years has become a Cathedral educational resource centre for school visits. The desks of the headmaster and assistant master remain at opposite ends of the room as a reminder of the original use as a single large classroom, or “Big School Room” as it was called, with the two classes sitting back to back. The attic contains some dormitories and there are original medieval cellars below the building.
