We hope you enjoy your visit to Salisbury Cathedral and the Close.   Please note that the Cathedral is a living church and during your visit you may witness stage builds, rehearsals for concerts, services and weddings.   You may hear our Choristers rehearsing for Evensong or our Organist practicing.  We do not close the Cathedral for weddings or funerals so you may come across these during your time with us.  Please see here with regard to closures and further information.  Once a month our famous Willis Organ needs to be tuned, please see here for the dates.
