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

Italian designed church in close walking distance. Still in use and very pretty situated in a quiet and peaceful little village.

A hidden gem, this 'Italianate church' is just adorable and worth the visit for the architecture, glass windows and other lovely details.

The small town of Wilton on the A30 just east of Salisbury is a pleasant but unremarkable little village. Until you turn a corner and suddenly this huge Italianate church appears out of nowhere. It dwarfs all the other buildings in town. Built in 1844 it is heavily influenced by Byzantine and Romanesque churches. A lot of its interior decoration... More

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.
