The setting is magnificent, the building exquisite. On my last visit I met a guide near the entrance about to start a free tour. It was excellent.

Incredible cathedral inside and out. Just nice to wander around quietly and gawp at the architecture and the wood carvings. Especially liked the cloisters. Didn't ascend any towers or the like (not a fan of heights) but the view from the floor level was just dandy. The model that showed the techniques for building it was a revelation. I don't... More

Visited here with my partner and decided to do a tour. Not expecting much we chose the tower tour and it was absolutely brilliant!!! Highly recommend and will certainly do it again when we visit next. Not suitable for people who can't manage stairs or don't like heights but for anyone else it's a great experience. We took our cameras... More

I don't think I've ever seen a building with such fascinating architecture and colourful history - including the Magna Carta - so if you are in Salisbury, take the time to visit this cathedral, you won't regret it!

There is nothing to dislike. One of the most beautiful buildings in the world and a joy to behold. History is evident wherever one looks, including an amazing 14th century clock (still working).

The cathedral had a lovely ambience about it. We were met straight away by a very friendly and helpful lady who offered guidance on where to go and what to do while in the Cathedral. While in the Cathedral, there was lots of interesting information to read about not only the Cathedral but also the Magna Carta, which sadly wasn't... More

Salisbury cathedral is a lovely peaceful spot, the facilities are excellent, I would go again just to visit the cafe. If feels like a vibrant place with recent additions, helpful guides and even a magna carte in cake!
