I stumbled across this church on TripAdvisor completely by accident when trying to find something for my Italian family to see when we visited Salisbury. It was such a peculiar find that we had to visit and it wasn't a disappointment. The church exterior is so Italian and even done details inside could have been straight from Italy. I wouldn't...

The exterior of this church is extremely unusual and does rather take your breathe away. The interior too needs to be seen in all its glory. If you are passing do take the time to step inside. There is a timed light switch in a corner by the entrance (left hand side) that when pressed turns on the lights above... More

Amazing decorated apse, in memory of a former rector (Canon Olivier). The whole building of one period, built at the behest of a former Countess of Pembroke, all in the Italianate style.

The bell tower is an astonishing sight in a Wiltshire town. Wonderful mosaics and a very warm welcome from the church members.

I never thought I could say a church took my breath away, but this certainly did. The exterior is amazing, for a moment I forgot I was in England. I can understand why its called the 'Italianate' church. Beautiful and well worth a visit.

This is an amazing find in Wilton....the exterior architecture is incredible, one could be in Sienna or Rome. The interior is not so stunning save for the altar area and the dome above the altar, the painting of which replicates what may be seen in Europe. A friendly welcome from a local guide and a sense of peace and history.

We received a warm welcome from a guide who was most informative. We were struck by its enormous size, having only seen it previously on a postcard.

Great little church, and the curate put the lights on for me to see the absolutely fantastic mosaics.

Astonishing Victorian Italianate church on a grand scale. Has to be seen to be believed. Amazing details, vast building with the finest carving and furnishings.

We came upon this church by chance.The interior reminded us more of a Greek Orthodox church with its wonderful mosaics and painted interior and ceilings. Not something you' d usually see in a church in England.
