Salisbury and Cathedral

A visit to Salisbury Cathedral is highly recommended. Known as ‘the city in the countryside’, Salisbury is surrounded by a landscape so quintessentially English it’s almost too good to be true. If you pause on the edge of the water-meadows to take in the awesome sight of the Cathedral rising up from these lush green fields, it’s easy to understand why this was described as ‘Britain’s Best View’ by readers of Country Life magazine.

The spectacular Salisbury Cathedral is unique in being built almost entirely in one architectural style, Early English Gothic and has Britain’s tallest spire (123m/404ft) plus numerous famous literary connections. Enjoy a guided tour of the Salisbury Cathedral floor or book a tower tour and climb 332 steps to the base of the spire to enjoy magnificent views across Salisbury’s famous water meadows.

Alternatively, explore by yourself and discover the world’s finest original Magna Carta, Europe’s oldest working clock and over 750 years of history. All this and it’s only an hours drive from Dorwyn Manor.
