To view one of the four Magna Chartas was awe inspiring. If you love cathedrals this is definitely on the to do list

Would highly recommend the Salisbury Cathedral Tower tour. The guide, David Mills, was very informative and I learnt a lot about how this magnificent building was constructed. You get greats views of the nave on the tour and when you get to the viewing area at the base of the spire you are rewarded with a panorama of Salisbury looking... More

We took advantage of the volunteer guides at Salisbury Cathedral and became immersed in a walk through 400 years of English religious history. There were the obvious references to the incredible construction, the modifications to strengthen and secure the structure, and the oldest working clock in "the world?". It was at time well spent and if we had not had... More

The desk at the door making you feel like you HAVE to pay to go in is awful and should be removed. The pool in the cathedral that reflects the ceiling is fantastic though.

We made sure on our trip to the New Forest to visit Salisbury Cathedral, what a wonderful place. The font is amazing and if you get in the right position, can photograph the stained glass windows reflecting into it. Also some choir practice at the time made our visit more special.

What a sight! No one there knows about the Ghost Knight tours (or even sells the book in the gift shop), but we enjoyed our visit and the refectory cafe has excellent food and a neat setting.

We were fascinated by the video presentation that was set up to commemorate the WW1 anniversary and the Apostles display was enchanting. We stayed for the lighting of the lanterns on the Apostle sculptures. Very moving to hear the story.

I had a few hours to kill so decided to explore. I paid the 15.00 entrance but I did feel rather obliged to which is a little wrong I think and also a little steep! However it is a beautiful church and the stained glass windows stunning. Make sure you see the magna carter as it's so interesting and unique... More

One of the great cathedrals of the world, it's beauty and pure spirituality are timeless. This is a must do on any UK trip, not only for the wonderment that is the cathedral but also to see a cornerstone of most Commonwealth countries' constitution with one's own eyes. Just do it. :)

One of the most beautiful cathedrals in Europe. The architecture is superb and the interior vast and truly memorable.
