Set in eight acres of lawn in the centre of Salisbury, The Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary is one of England’s finest, built to the glory of God entirely in the Early English Gothic style in just 38 years (1220 – 1258). This living church and internationally renowned heritage attraction continues to inspire all who visit, whether to worship or to admire its stunning medieval architecture.
With the UK’s tallest spire, Salisbury Cathedral is also home to the best preserved original Magna Carta (1215) and is full of hidden treasures including:
The world’s oldest working clock (AD 1386)
Britain’s largest secular cathedral cloisters
The largest and earliest set of quire stalls in Britain.
This sacred place offers a warm welcome to pilgrims and tourists alike. There are daily choral services and regular prayers plus special concerts, art exhibitions, community events and education activities throughout the year.
