Salisbury Cathedral

The Cl, Salisbury SP1 2EJ, UK

Salisbury Cathedral

A walk around the cathedral is an essential part of any visit to Salisbury. The cathedral is 800 years old and has the tallest spire in the UK, as well as the unusual distinctions of being built in just one architectural style - Early English Gothic, as it was built over just 40 years, rather than over centuries. Here you can see the best preserved copy of the Magna Carta, walk around the largest Cloisters in the UK, admire the infinity font and even climb the tower. Regular events and art installations take place here every year, many of which are free to see.
