Salisbury Cathedral

About

Medieval Salisbury lies at the confluence of five rivers and the awe-inspiring sight of the Cathedral, rising up from the water-meadows, has been described as ‘Britain’s Best View’ by readers of Country Life magazine. 

Salisbury Cathedral was built in just 38 years (AD 1220-1258) and offers one superlative after another, from the tallest spire in Britain and the oldest working clock in Europe to the world’s best preserved original Magna Carta.  Why not explore the roof on a tower tour to experience breathtaking views of the nave from above, or take a free, guided tour?

Other attractions within Cathedral Close include Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum, The Wardrobe Military Museum and Mompesson House. Built in 1701, the latter is a perfect example of Queen Anne architecture and featured in the award-winning film of Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility. 

One of the great things about shopping in Salisbury is the compact nature of the city centre and the fact that many of Salisbury’s shops are housed in historic half-timbered buildings. The thriving Charter Market has been pitching up here every Tuesday and Saturday for almost 800 years. 

Salisbury also has plenty of traditional inns, from pubs with gardens to pubs with ghosts, and the city’s cuisine also tempts with everything from eclectic English and inspirational Indian, to indulgent Italian.

There are plenty of events that take place in and around the city from the world-renowned Salisbury International Arts Festival through to the annual Christmas Market.
