one of the nicest environments for a Cathedral. The close is lovely. Nice cathedral especially the window for prisoners of conscience. Gorgeous. Good to see the magna carta too

“Beautiful surprise”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Wow! We were in Amesbury for the weekend visiting Stonehenge and decided to drive down to Salisbury to visit the Cathedral on Sunday morning before going back to London.
This cathedral is absolutely and breathtakingly beautiful! We expected to see something social, but this was even more spectacular for me than Stonehenge.
It reminded me very much of Notre Dame In Paris & even put me in the mind of parts of The Sistine Chapel in Rome. The property is very well maintained. Just beyond words beautiful inside & out.
We attended mass on Sunday and the choir sounded angelic. It was the perfect way to end our trip. I HIGHLY recommend a stop here. You will not regret it!

A free Blue Guide took us around for an hour. Then go back and revist. Cathedral easy to get aroung in. Make sure you visit the Chapter House where there is the Magna Carta with a full explaination.

“Cloisters and sculpture”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

lots to see here whether you only have a few minutes to spare or a whole day. The spire is just amazing and the monuments in the cloister are well worth taking time to read. Fabulous model of Old Sarum in the cloisters too - good place to take visitors anytime, but especially on a wet day.
