Attraction details
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.

A beautiful perpendicular gothic building, a real city church. Contains the largest 'Doom' painting in the country - a mediaeval picture of the Day of Judgement. Well worth a visit..

We went to my daughter's school Carol Service here in December. The atmosphere is calm and serene. The church was decorated beautifully. It is an oasis of calm in Salisbury City Centre. A must see place.

The Parish Church is 3-4 minutes walk from the Cathedral, and is right in the city centre. It is undervedly dwarfed by its bigger neighbour, but is worth visting for the ceiling in the nave, and a spectacular mural/painting at the end of the naves.

Quick drop in with peace and quiet right in the city plus slab of history. Located behind Cheese Market and Minster Street.

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.
