Salisbury Cathedral Tours

star-5
5 Reviews
Salisbury Cathedral
With its dramatic Gothic facade and Britain’s highest church spire at an impressive 404 feet (123 m), the Salisbury Cathedral is one of the country’s most visited religious monuments, drawing some 250,000 visitors each year. As well as admiring the cathedral’s remarkable 13th-century architecture and exquisite stained-glass windows, visitors can climb the 332 steps to the top of the tower for a magnificent view of Salisbury.

The cathedral’s star attraction is an original copy of the 1215 Magna Carta, one of the world’s most famous and significant documents that remains a cornerstone of British law. An interactive Magna Carta exhibition walks visitors through the historic events of its legacy of social justice. The cathedral also holds the world’s oldest working mechanical clock, which dates back to 1386, and afternoon tea in the Bell Tower Tearooms.

The best way to discover the cathedral is on a 90-minute guided tour of Salisbury, with entrance included. Many visitors opt to visit on a day trip from London, often combined with a visit to nearby Stonehenge or Avebury stone circle.

Practical Info

Salisbury Cathedral is located in central Salisbury, and is open daily from 9am to 5pm. Adult admission is £7.50 and £3 for youth.

Did you know? The Magna Carta on display in Salisbury Cathedral is one of only four surviving original copies in the world, and is listed on UNESCO’s ‘Memory of the World’ Heritage list.
