We took the free tour given by a knowledgeable guide, very interesting. “Donation” for family of four was 15 pounds. Visited the store afterward which was really nice. Beautiful cathedral.

The cathedral was lovely from the outside but we both felt that it lacked a certain something inside. It might be the modern stained glass windows, some of which are, frankly, disappointing. It might be the time of day, because there were people moving clothing...More

To see the Magna Carta is just incredible. If you manage to read some of it you’ll be amazed how much is still relevant. The cathedral is wonderful too.

A place full of history. The buildings are very well preserved. You can find a lot of information available. The sorrounding gardens are a very nice place for a picnic and to chat with all the friendly locals.

This must be the most important part of a trip to Salisbury; the building is breathtakingly beautiful and has various historical artifacts, including the Magna Carta and the world's oldest functioning time piece.

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... More
