I visited Salisbury cathedral it is the most stunning building and absolutely beautiful inside. The shopping town and medieval villages is a step back in time. Salisbury is also very nice and well worth a visit. I enjoyed my time there. I highly recommend a trip to Salisbury Cathedral.. You will enjoy it. M. Hynes

Surely one of the most fabulous of England's cathedrals, Salisbury sits in substantial grounds which enable you to stand back and take-in an excellent impression of its scale ... which is monstrous. The entrance façade is overwhelmingly beautiful and it misleads you into imagining a wonderful interior which is actuially rather ... plain. The interior highlight is the chapter house... More

Built in the mid 13th Century this is a must see landmark. One the the existing MAGNA CARTA copies is on exhibit here as well. Certainly one of the most beautiful cathedrals in all of Europe in the center of a lovely town. Don't miss this!

The scale of the spire has to been seen up close to be really appreciated. Spectacular example of medieval architecture. I didn't realise it, but there's also the world's oldest working clock here too. Check it out on an evening when the sun's light really makes the stone glow. Salisbury town centre is close enough to explore, with lots of... More

Salisbury cathedral is one of the many medieval cathedral masterpieces in England. A picturesque setting in a lovely town, the cathedral itself is the prime example in the country of the Early English gothic style of architecture. Highlight for me was the tower tour. You get to see how the stone vault was constructed, the clock & bell chime mechanism,... More

First of all if you are driving recomend the park and ride gets around any parking problems. While Salisbury as a town looks nothing special once you enter the cathedral it is worth the visit . At present the exhibition of glass and light is a photographer dream. Not too crowded well worth the time even if not religious. Enjoyed... More

The Cathedral is quite central and the approach is through a shopping area where there are many independent shops. Very pleasant area around the Cathedral for walking. Arundells House (home of Sir Edward Heath) is opposite. Nice cafe where you can sit in the cloisters to have your refreshments. The Magna Carta is on display inside the Cathedral.

I adore this cathedral!!! It surprisingly has a lovely collection of contemporary art. Most might prefer these creations to be more inline with the rich heritage of a gothic sanctuary. However, as an artistic enthusiast, I feel it's exciting to display creativity that reflects society's advancements. Places like these were built to last a lifetime and with change as a... More
