“Peace and tranquility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Always a beautiful place to visit, especially when the choristers are rehearsing for evensong. Only cathedral in Britain that was built in one style.

What an amazing cathedral. Went for Evensong on Sunday and the singing was lovely and well worth a visit.

“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Terrific guides and a place to enjoy for hours, don't do the tower tour unless you are fit, it has 362 steps to get to the top.

Nice cafe were you can get a nice lunch or just a cuppa

“Tallest spire”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

The spire is well worth climbing the stairs for to hear about the history of building such a large spire and to have a 360o view of Salisbury.
