St Thomas’s Church. A welcome in the heart of the city Dating mostly from the Fifteenth Century, the Church of St Thomas a Becket stands in its own square at the north end of Salisbury High Street, a two-minute walk from the Cathedral Close. This has been a place of worship since the early Thirteenth Century. Please come in for a look round. Try to spot the “damned bishop” being led to Hell in the famous Doom painting. Or why not try counting all 250 angels on the roof, walls and pillars? There is full disabled access to all public areas of the church with ramps and an automatic door. Quiet, boisterous, contemplative, social: it’s always a good time to drop in to St Thomas’s. We’d be happy to meet you whenever you can stop by.

A cathedral it may not be but this church dating from 1220 of the parish of St. Thomas (combined either that of St. Edmund only in the 1970s) situated to the west of the city towards the railway station is well worth a visit. It is remarkable to see a continuous list of vicars from the 13th century to the... More

Hidden in plain view, this church is free and right in the center of town. Pop in to see the Doom painting and enjoy the beautiful, peaceful space; take a breath and have a little break from all the activity of the day.

This small church is a short walk from Salisbury Cathedral & well worth a visit. Both inside & outside are lovely & historic. It is also next to shops & the historic district of Salisbury.

We visited this church after discovering its connection to the Cathedral; it was built by the craftsmen working on the Cathedral as their church. It is a beautiful little church. The most impressive attraction is the medieval friezes above the nave and Lady Chapel that were rediscovered at the end of the 19th century. This church is a lovely reflective... More

This church is absolutely beautiful. Overshadowed by it's much more famous and larger cousin the Cathedral it is easily overlooked but if you are in Salisbury it really should be on your itinerary. The fabulous stained glass, wood and stone carvings and ancient frescoes are definitely worth seeing .... and it is free

the church is quite close to the shopping centre and cathedral. If you doing a walk around Salisbury, this is an interesting place to stop into.
