A simply beautiful building with 1000's of years of history. I have been visiting for a number of years, I learn something new every time. Contains one of only 4 copies of Magna Carta. A building constantly on the move with its roots very firmly planted in Medieval England.

Some lovely sections of building. Make sure you book for a tour as its the only way to go up the spire. Fab views and the grounds are ideal for sunbathing.

If you enjoy visiting cathedrals this is one not to miss. It is a truly wonderful piece of history. While visiting the cathedral make sure of a trip round Salisbury too.

Very lovely building, very interesting inside, I paid £6.50 to go in and I'm privileged to do so. Time and time again I read people moaning about paying to go in to a church or a cathedral, when they don't moan about paying to go into a castle or a grand house. People seem to play the religious card when... More

One of the most interesting buildings in Wiltshire which has five rivers running underneath it. If you have a head for heights it's a must to go up the spire,it is so well worth it. The place is absolutely steeped in history,from Old Sarum to the present day and it's finished off with a cream tea.Excellent value for money.

Not been there for a while, but if you're into historic buildings then you'll enjoy this very much. Café on hand and plenty of history to discover. There was only a donation on entry when I visited last. I've not done one but I believe a guided tour is available and very informative. The surrounding grounds are packed with history... More

salisbury cathedral is one of england's most iconic landmarks with its elegant spire dominating the landscape. The cathedral houses a copy of the magna carta and has many more artefacts that reflects ecclesiastical history. A beautiful building surrounded by the Close, which in itself is a joy to contemplate. A place of spiritual beauty and historical importance.

The architecture is stunning. We took the tour up to the spire and it was well worth the climb. Seeing the beam structure and how the ceiling was made. The climb is not too strenuous as the guide stops on each level to explain the construction methods. Very interesting and absorbing. The bonus is when the bells ring, nothing like... More
