What can be said about Salisbury Cathedral that hasn't already been said? It's stunning, to say the least. I first visited in May of 2000, then found myself snowed in this past December, 2010. We were fortunate to be there on the night of the...More

The cathedral is a Gothic wonder. It's tower dominates the landscape for miles and it's Gothic nave is immense. This is also where one of the original copies of the Magna Carta is located. Highly recommended. ~Rich

Salisbury Cathedral is absolutely amazing, inside and out. You must take time to walk around the entire outside of the Cathedral as well as inside. The history of the building is fascinating and it's well worth listening to the audio guide and speaking to those...More

After entering, I first visited the Cloisters courtyard - in the morning light, it just took my breath away. Then I entered the Cathedral proper, into the Admissions area. There is no fee, but you are asked to make a donation. The docents inside gave...More
