The town of Salisbury is very quaint and typical English. The Cathedral spires can be seen from almost all over town. getting to it is very easy by bus or train. a short walk from the train depot brings you through the heart of town with many pubs that are not as old but close. the shopping area is great...

Salisbury Cathedral is a must see and only 10 miles from its more well known neighbor, Stonehenge. Its Gothic splendor is magnificent and its spire the tallest in England. It was once the abbey churdh of Salisbury with a beautiful cloister, fabulous evensong service and peaceful interior. It has a nice refectory as well where you can get some pretty... More

We've visited so many cathedrals lately that adding this one to our England itinerary seemed like a bit much. But this was the "crown jewel" of all of them! We expected to walk up, take a few photos from outside and leave in 15 minutes. Instead, it took our breath away and we ended up spending 3 hours inside, reading... More

Impressive and gorgeous structure and grounds. Tour guide was excellent and most interesting. A most special space. The Magna Carta on parchment was mind-blowing.

We were very impressed with Salisbury cathedral -built entirely in one style, Early English Gothic. We entered through the cathedral's original 13th-century door and from then on we were transfixed. The cathedral boasts the tallest spire in Britain and is steeped in history. Highly recommend a visit.

What a remarkable church! It has the tallest spire in the UK (400 meters+) and was used by German bomber pilots as a directional guide while they bombed the rest of the UK, that is why the town wasn't bombed during WWII. One of four copies of the Magna Carta is here.
