I think this has to be the most beautiful Cathedral in Britian. The setting is splendid and the architecture stunning. It's wonderful by day but quite ethereal at night. The grounds are well kept and dog friendly. Take a picnic, sit on the grass and marvel at this spectacular building.

Go see it! - take a guided tour! Afterwords go for a tour around the city. It is not a big city, so you can experience most of it if yiu are on a tour from Bristol or Bath. But also you can use the whole day!

Breakfast in Bath, a morning visit to Stonehenge, and then a visit to Salisbury that included lunch in the Refectory Cafe (mixed quartered sandwiches and choice of drink) followed by a tour by a volunteer guide to assist our visit to this 13th century cathedral and then for a quick visit to see the Magna Carta before a return to...

A frequent stop now for breakfast, coffee, brunch or lunch. Food continues to improve with generous portions that are tasty and great value for money. Whoever does the cakes deserves a pat on the back - they are very naughty! Can be a little crowded as its popularity increases so timing is important verse the coach trips to the city.... More

Wonderful cathedral with beautiful modern art pieces amongst the ancient. The font is lovely and so unusual. Lots of guides available to answer questions and a very fair admission price compared to other British attractions.

As with all Cathedrals, the real highlight is the architecture itself, but there is a helpful pamphlet that you get with your admission that points out the areas of particular interest within the Cathedral. Happily, photography is allowed. The cloisters and the chapter house, which houses an original copy of the Magna Carta, are also beautiful. Guides throughout are available... More

We knew that it would be great. We were so happy to plan this break in Salisbury. And we mainly stopped here for this place and to see Magna Carta. And we did... We spent the whole afternoon in there making great photos and videos. Some stories we read and heard in this church were great and give you an... More

This wonderful cathedral is still a place of worship, just as it should be! Sadly so many others have become mere tourist attractions. You must do the tower tour, book in advance. It's worth ever penny!! Stunning stained glass windows. We absolutely loved this place. And whether you are religious or not, I swear you will feel a presence.
