'Salisbury Cathedral is the single most beautiful structure in England, and the Close around it the most beautiful space' Bill Bryson - Notes from a Small Island

A beautiful and historic building, Salisbury Cathedral is an impressive stage for major services, concerts and art installations, yet also a place for private prayer and reflection. The Cathedral and surrounding Close are visited by over 500,000 people a year. Many come as tourists or to worship, while others attend some of the many events taking place here. The Cathedral is open to all and seeks to provide facilities for, and a warm welcome to, all our many visitors.
