Closures

The Chapter House, and the Salisbury Cathedral original copy of Magna Carta 1215 will be closed 5 January - 6 March 2015 as we prepare for the exciting new Magna Carta exhibition opening 7 March 2015. See below for further details. We apologise for any disappointment this causes visitors during this period.

Occasionally the Cathedral, or parts of it, may need to close or only offer restricted access for a service, special event or day to day maintenance. We try to minimise these periods as much as we can, as we know that people travel long distances to visit us. Please remember to check for last minute changes prior to your visit as some events, such as funerals, are only arranged at short notice.
