Discover Salisbury Cathedral’s hidden library
Hear the fascinating stories behind the ancient books in our collection on this one-of-a-kind tour.
A winding stone staircase above the Cloisters leads to our library, which was built in 1445. It contains over 10,000 historic books, with some more than 800 years old. An expert will show you a range of books specially selected to demonstrate the importance and variety of the collection. This is a fascinating glimpse into the Cathedral and its past.
Adult: £22 (when pre-booked online)
Tours last approximately one hour.
Due to access, this tour may not be suitable for everyone (the library is accessed via a small winding stone staircase with 37 steps, some of which are uneven).
Booking online in advance will give you access to the best ticket prices. Tickets may be available for tours on the day for £24 per adult ticket. However, tours are often booked up in advance so we cannot guarantee you will be able to book onto a tour on the day.
