Salisbury Cathedral and Magna Carta Questions & Answers

Pitt Meadows, Canada

Is there any scaffolding on the outside of that cathedral? We are thinking of visiting the cathedral in June 2018, but I would like to be there when I can take photographs of the outside of the cathedral.

We are about 4/5ths of the way through our programme to restore parts of the Cathedral that need repair so there is still some scaffolding on the East end of the building.

That said, the Cathedral is pretty big so depending on where you are standing you can still get very good shots without any scaffold in view!

We hope you enjoy your visit.

We were there Oct. 2017 very little scaffolding, but it is massive and well worth the visit. Pictures were wonderful. They were doing some cleaning of the outside, but it was minor.

I noticed a little, obscuring the light to the stained glass windows behind the high alter. But nothing like at Canterbury. Even if it were covered entirely in scaffolding; I would still come. It's a fascinating chapter of English History and beautiful architecture.

On one end only and not the facades that face the cathedral close that are the most impressive. most of the beautiful exterior and all of the interior and the spire are unaffected. I wouldn't not come because of it.

There is a small amount at the East end but it hardly detracts from the building. As I put in my review, we have to marvel how they put this building up without the aid of modern methods eg scaffolding.- I would contact them directly to see what they have planned in January as all old buildings have a constant maintenance programme.

We were just there a couple of weeks ago didn’t notice scaffolding if there was any, check again nearer your visit but the interior is still amazing.

I know what you mean. I was able to take pictures without scaffolding. I didn't see any, unlike Parliament in London.
