Salisbury Cathedral and its surrounding Close attract some 500,000 visitors each year. Many come as tourists, to worship or to attend concerts, workshops and art installations. There is nearly 800 years of history to explore, including Britain’s tallest spire, the best preserved of only four surviving 1215 Magna Carta documents and the world’s oldest working mechanical clock.

'Salisbury Cathedral is the single most beautiful structure in England, and the Close around it the most beautiful space'
