Beautiful cathedral with many interesting features. There is a water feature in the centre of the nave which has an appearance of stillness despite water pouring out from four corners. The Magna Carta exhibition in the Chapter House is excellent, with various informative displays set around it. If travelling by car I would recommend using the Park and Ride which... More

The cathedral is a glorious sight. Shame about the price to get in. When you get to the entrance it says we rely on donations, but the adult price is 7.50pound. Because we are from Australia that makes it around $15. Sorry that is up there to go into a cathedral.just visited the worlds largest cathedral in Rome and it... More

Although we have visited the cathedral several times in the past,we went again to see one of the only four Magna Carta's existing which is on display at the moment in the Chapter House. It is probably the best preserved of those still in existence. The accompanying history of the political situation at the time,and it's influence on future declarations... More

This lovely old cathedral is centrally located and part of the Stonehenge bust tour. Lovely light exhibition on during our visit. However as there was an ordination we didn't get to spend time wandering around the cathedral. The queue to see the Magna Charta was very long and it wasn't possible to take photo's of it. However the people manning... More

One of the country finest Churches, although at times you would believe it is more a museum than a House of God. They are tour guides and maps to help you find your way around, and it is well worth a visit and time to take everything in. They have a onsite shop selling the usual high priced stuff you'd...

Definitely worth visiting for two reasons: they have the best-preserved copy of the Magna Carta and it has the tallest spire in England. It also is one of the few cathedrals built entirely in one style of architecture. The cathedral sits on beautiful grounds where you can enjoy a picnic and the beautiful English town. The inside of the cathedral... More

Salisbury Cathedral ranks among the top half dozen in the UK, with all the usual attributes of beautiful stained glass windows, amazing architecture and interesting internal features, including a very modern font. There are 2 attractions which make this an outstanding cathedral. Firstly the copy of Magna Carta and secondly the tour of the spire. This copy of Magna Carta... More
