Salisbury Cathedral, Wiltshire

Arriving in Salisbury after a two hour drive, we needed a little boost so first thing… coffee! While enjoying a cappuccino, the top of the cathedral peaking through above the skyline and I couldn’t wait to explore. Full of caffeine and enthusiasm we walked through the high street, accompanied by the sound of buskers, we entered the cathedral grounds, after a quick stop to peer through the window of Roly’s Fudge , where you can watch the process of the fudge being made live!

The initial view is breath-taking. Salisbury cathedral in radiating glory. Built between 1200 and 1258, it has the tallest church spire in the United Kingdom. As you can see by my photographs below, the amount of architecture detail is incredible. Strolling around the cloisters, there is so many photo opportunities to accentuate the cathedral from every angle.

The interior of the cathedral will blow your mind, everything is symmetrical and finished with precision.  After a visit inside the cathedral, you can sit back and relax on the cathedral grounds, appreciating the wire sculptures.

Salisbury has a lot to offer in and out of the cathedral grounds. Medieval architecture is around every corner, offering large amounts of historical character to the city.

    Salisbury looks lovely in the sun! A famed cathedral and a fudge shop – now I’m wondering why I haven’t been there yet other than in passing!

    Another interesting place at Salisbury is Old Sarum – it’s just on the outskirts. A ruined cathedral and very ancient settlement.

    This is a really beautiful cathedral. How old would it be? We have plenty of beautiful churches here in India too. One of them is the St. Philomena’s church.

      It is 696 years old! I agree with you, St. Philomena’s church is stunning! 🙂
