We visited the Cathedral to take the tour of the tower this weekend together with my son and his girlfriend. This was a really fascinating and fun tour. We came thinking we would just go to the top and back but never dreamed it would be so interesting. John our guide was full of amazing facts but managed to share these in an interesting and humorous way. The time flew by and the whole group really enjoyed the afternoon.

Would thoroughly recommend you go...and ask for John!

While technically free, they have a desk right in front of the cathedral entrance asking for donations to get get in with a suggestion of how much you should pay. So, you kind of get shamed in to donating. The Magna Carta is in a separate area/room you can access without the shaming of donations if you just want to see that. The cathedral itself is breathtaking. For sure worth a visit. The teens I was with thought the display of broken glass where someone tried to steal the Magna Carta was more interesting than the the Carta itself! HA!

Our welcome desk is a key contact point for visitors where they can get information, book tickets for tours/events and, if they wish, make a donation. We train our staff to deal with the topic of donations with discretion and sensitivity as we strive to be open and welcoming to everyone. The positioning and format of our welcome desk is difficult to change, but we will take your comments on board and we will certainly review our signs in the immediate future. Thank you very much for visiting us and for sending us your review.

Suggest you pay the £7 to park nearby, as it saves trawling round the town. Also, this fee entitles you to free tea for 2 in the cathedral cafe, as well as discounts in the shop.
One minor drawback was the lack of knowledge by the cathedral guides as to the presence of statues in the alcoves - replacing those ransacked in the Reformation.

Thank you for your review. We have a very large team of volunteer guides who share knowledge with each other. We can't expect every guide to know everything (as our building has over 800 years of history), but many of our guides do have specialist knowledge about different aspects of the Cathedral.

Knowing the age of the building makes the stucture more interesting as the skills of the builders were fabulous. The grace of the carving of the columns and ceilings are amazing.

This cathedral is absolutely beautiful! We spent hours on multiple visits during our stay in Salisbury. Explore, study, pray and let the Spirit fill your soul with the experience. We attended morning prayer, evensong, had cream tea at the tea shop on the grounds and enjoyed the tower tour and saw the Manga Carta. We will treasure every moment we spent here.
