Discover nearly 800 years of history, including Britain's tallest spire, the world's best preserved original Magna Carta 1215 and Europe's oldest working clock, on a free tour with one of our knowledgable volunteer guides. Built between 1220 and 1258 in one architectural style, Salisbury is Britain's finest 13th century Gothic Cathedral. With over 70,000 tons of medieval craftsmanship to admire there is plenty to see, do and learn at Salisbury Cathedral. Ideally we suggest you allow between 1.5 - 3 hours for your visit but you can see most of the highlights in 45 minutes if you are really pressed for time. For the ultimate experience we recommend you take in the breathtaking views of our tower tour (approximately 90 minutes) followed by a floor tour with one of our knowledgeable volunteer guides (one hour), finishing with evensong. Alternatively, you can explore the Cathedral at your own pace with our free printed guide. Our interactive Magna Carta exhibition is not to be missed!

The cathedral is lovely inside and has great stained glass windows and stone details. Staff are very helpful to and the cafe/restrooms are very modern and clean.

This cathedral is very impressive to see from a distance, and even more so up close. A beautiful example of Medieval architecture. The Magna Carta is a must-see for every history nut.

If you have never been here before, go! It is an amazingly beautiful cathedral set in a wonderful close. We paid £7 for parking, even with a Blue Badge but got a free hot drink. It was worth it. At present there is an exhibition...More

This is a great cathedral to see if you like cathedrals. Added bonus is an original copy of the Magna Carta.
