With breathtaking views, Britain’s tallest spire and original 1215 Magna Carta, Salisbury Cathedral is one of England’s ‘must-see’ historical attractions.
Learn the incredible story of the Cathedral that, 800 years ago, defiantly moved 2 miles from Old Sarum to where it stands today. 
Walk in the same space that has attracted travellers, merchants, and pilgrims for centuries and discover how this beautiful building was designed for daily worship which still continues today.

Then admire this medieval masterpiece from our tranquil lawns or step into the countryside and enjoy a riverside walk in the picturesque park nearby.
Its just a 10-minute walk from Salisbury Train Station, a 20-minute drive from Stonehenge and a 1.5 hour journey from London.
We are managing the number of people we welcome at one time for everyone’s safety so we recommend you book your visit in advance (especially if you want to guarantee entry at your time of choice).
