The cathedral is a marvellous building. Here, truly, Scripture has become architecture. It's also a very spiritual place. Enjoyed every bit of it.

Salisbury Cathedral has become quite a haven for me. Each time I visit the U.K. And my daughter I make it my mission to visit the Cathedral. It is the most beautiful building fraught with History yet filled with the presence of God. The fact that I can enter it - giving a donation- wander around inside or just sit... More

I did not expect the Salisbury Cathedral to be so imposing and beautiful at the same time. It was great for taking pictures too (got to love the closed yard!). A wonderful opportunity to see Magna Carta as well.

Salisbury Cathedral is most definitely worth a visit if you are even vaguely interested in history/British culture/monarchy/architecture/engineering or the role of the Church. It is free to go in (but a donation is requested) and a great deal to once you do. Lots of models, relics, Magna Carta, a tea room etc.

Saw the new millennium font which was stunning. The vaulted ceiling and stone columns took our breath away. Took a guided tour, our guide was very interesting and the tour informative.

What an exceptional place to visit. A beautiful Cathedral, steeped in history. Wonderful architecture and the site so well presented! The cafe was really good, Food food, reasonably priced with activities and toys to keep the grandchildren occupied!
