it is actually called Wilton Parish Church and the postcode is SP2 0DL. Anyone who is remotely interested in architecture should visit this church which has its roots in the Italian and Russian benefactors which can be very clearly seen from the remarkable money-no-object spending that has clearly gone on. the church was built in the Italian Romanesque style.

This church is a short distance out of the village- only 5 mins or so, but is well worth the walk. I can't imagine what mind gave birth to this design in Wiltshire but it has been well done. Take time to wander around the architecture and once i side, don't miss pressing the button on the wall that illuminates... More

I came across this Church quite by accident whilst travelling to Salisbury. What a gem! The outside of the Church was the attraction - very Italian and intriging - had to go inside and see if it was as beautiful on the inside. There was an elderly lady working in the church and she took time to show me around... More

A must for visitors to the area, this Italianate church is stunningly beautiful. When the sun streams in through the stained glass window behind the altar, the effect is truly awesome.

There are very good reviews about this church , so I can add only a little more. We were going to Salisbury and passing through Wilton, a little pleasant village. Suddenly I saw this gold stone, beautiful Italian looking church. Got my husband to stop the car & park, I had to see it better, could not believe my eyes!!!!... More

Magnificent church from the outside. On entering you press a lighting button, on the left of the main door or on the left of the bell tower door, which lights up the mosaics behind the main alter. Worth a visit and very close to Wilton House.

Unbeknown to us when we planned our visit, the weekend we were in the nearby area was full of Magna Carta celebrations which resulted in a lot of the roads to Salisbury being closed and the general area being very busy – for this reason we ended up looking for things to do away from Salisbury centre and am so...

Lucy made us feel so welcome and couldn't do enough for us. Thanks. Peter gave us more details as we walked back through the town. Over 100 attend. Wonderful in this day and age. Thanks, Peter. The design is evidently influenced by Italian churches (many comments to this effect on TripAdvisor already) but there is Russian influence as the Dowager... More

This is an amazing church, like nothing else anywhere outside of Italy. It is well worth visiting if you are in the Salisbury area. Salisbury Red bus R3, from the City Centre will take you to Wilton in about 15 mins (£4 return) From the outside you really think you must be in Italy. The inside is also spectacular with... More
