Plan your visit
With nearly 800 years of history to explore and over 70,000 tons of medieval craftsmanship to admire, there is plenty to see, do and learn at Salisbury Cathedral. Ideally we suggest you allow between 1.5 - 3 hours for your visit but you can see most of the highlights in 45 minutes if you are pressed for time.
For the ultimate experience we recommend you combine a tower tour (approximately 90 minutes) and a floor tour with one of our knowledgeable volunteer guides, finishing with evensong. Alternatively, you can explore the Cathedral at your own pace with our free printed guide.
You could spend the day with us and also explore our beautiful and historic close, then spend the night in Salisbury and see the original site of the Cathedral at Old Sarum the next day, followed by a visit to Stonehenge only eight miles away.
