Despite being a small group it was magical.no sat in amazing surrounds listening I could have stayed longerif my chair had been comfortable. I would like to visit when a service is taking place. The Magna Carte was well worth a visit and the... More

No entrance fee but a suggested donation of £7.50 per adult; you'd feel very guilty if you just walked past the lady at the entrance desk and didn't donate!! Worth the money though as good guided tours, and it is a fantastic cathedral with so much to see. Food in the café is pricey but very tasty.

The cathedral is amazing! and very interesting to learn about the carta magna. Although charging 7.50 GBP for getting inside a church seems too much

When I walk into the Cathedral, the hairs rise on the back of my neck. What a beautiful and interesting building with many surprising extras. We attended "Carols in the Cathedral" close to Christmas and a lovely experience it was too.

As stated by other reviewers, there is an entry with a donation price which we paid, in hindsight gladly. As you enter there are volunteer guides that will take you around and explain things. We were lucky on a rainy cold afternoon to get our own lovely guide, who once he realised we didn't want to rush, took a great... More

By chance we arrived just in time to join a (free) Guided Tour, and we were so glad we did. Within information ranging from the building of the original Cathedral to the bizarre spire climbing habits of historic youths, we found the talk both informative and entertaining.

We came here for a Chorister Induction Service of my Granddaughter. I have been to the cathedral before but never for a service and we sat in the back choir stalls so had a good view of proceedings. Music superb particularly the Anthem sung in Latin. Found the Memorial to my great great uncle Henry Parry Liddon who was a... More

We were visiting friends in Swindon, Wiltshire, and they brought us to this beautiful cathedral in Salisbury. Some aspects are notably impressive, such as the second tallest spire and the largest surviving cloister in all of England. The height of the nave is overwhelming and the painted arches are beautiful. But only by taking the tour, or reading up on... More
