Must have dominated the landscape when built.

You can see the spire when driving in to Salisbury.It is an even more impressive building when you walk into the Close.

Rude, argumentative, authoritative and belittling volunteers making assumptions that, as a (relative) youth, you have no regard for or understanding of conservation, completely ruined my visit. A welcoming staff and volunteer team would have made this a 4-5* visit. Yes, I understand why flash photography will ruin the Magna Carta. But I'm outside of the room, with NO flash or... More

We had a wonderful visit to the Cathedral and the Chapter House to see the Magna Carta. The Chapter House is free to visit and has a fascinating exhibit about the history of and making of the Magna Carta. I have to be honest I didn't expect to see a genuine version of the document itself which was a real... More

We were privileged to have a sort of private tour by one of the guides - which brought to life the whole building - it is definitely worth trying to have the benefit of the guide. Anyway, as everyone else says, amazing building, (I never thought I would say this but) the font is amazing, and the location is very... More

Very interesting cathedral , and one of the few you are allowed to take pictures of inside. Just a short walk from the Chaoter House where we were staying.

The Salisbury Cathedral is very old and hosts great architecture. The whole place is supported by a well informed pamphlet as we enter the premises. The tickets for us were a part of day long tour of Salisbury - Stonehenge tour. We spent around 1 hour here and also visited the Manga Carta - the original page on the sheep... More

This was the first visit for us to the cathedral. We were with friends so that was a plus. The chance to view one of the copies of Magna Carta was a huge bonus. It added to the importance of the cathedral. . There is a café and book shop which allows one to spend as much time as they... More

I walk past the Cathedral every weekday, and love seeing how the beautiful building changes with the light. My favourite parts of the interior are the Trinity Chapel, past the Altar. It's generally quiet and the stained glass windows are beautiful. You cannot avoid the beautiful ‘Living Water’ font (fountain/water feature?) by William Pye (2008), and if you angle your... More
