Owner description: 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.

“Beautiful little church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

I ad seen this church down as one of the best things to see in Salisbury on tripadvisor and went along to see it. It is tucked away among the shops and is a traditional church from the outside but the inside has many beautiful sights to view including the doom painting only found 120 years ago.

“Wonderful little Church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Lots of history in this little Church, lots to see. We stumbled upon this whilst walking through the village. It is in a lovely area and well worth having a look.

“Very lovely.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

Unlike the Cathedral, this small church which was made for the workers of the Cathedral is a delight to visit.

“Well worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

This church has a wonderful doom painting. Up on the chancel arch, it's a medieval wall painting - only uncovered about 120 years ago, having been whitewashed at the Reformation.
