Discover one of Britain’s finest medieval cathedrals, and see the best preserved copy of the Magna Carta in the world.
One of Britain’s finest medieval cathedrals, Salisbury Cathedral is built almost entirely in the Early English Gothic architectural style.
The Cathedral is set within eight acres of lawn and is surrounded by historic buildings in its beautiful Close. Within the Cathedral you’ll find the world’s oldest working clock (1386) and a stunning living water font. The Chapter House is also home to the best preserved Magna Carta manuscripts, which celebrated 800 years in 2015. See the Magna Carta within the exhibition which opened for the anniversary.
If you have a head for heights then be sure to book onto a Tower Tour and climb the 332 steps to the base of the spire for some spectacular views across the city.
