Gurston Down is located near Broad Chalke in the Chalke Valley. The names of these places already hint to the geography of the area. Guston Down, as most of the south of England, lies on chalk limestone. The chalk formations in southern England rise to the surface, but slightly tilted. The result is that one side of the hill is steeper than the other. This type of landscape is called Downland or simply The Downs. Without intensive agriculture, the chalk formations are generally grasslands.

The most famous landmark near Gurston Down is without any question Stonehenge. The large stonecircle can be found some 25km to the north. Although it is the most well-known, Stonehenge is not the only prehistoric monument in the area. It is part of a larger landscape of circles, cemetaries and other remains.

The nearest city to Gurston Down is Salisbury, some 13km to the east. Salisbury Cathedral is another landmark of (inter-)national fame.
