Congratulations on such a well laid out and easy to use website.
Other Cathedral sites would do well to imitate!
I visited your beautiful cathedral with my sons chapel choir from Epsom College.( 19th October) A most beautiful and moving prayer was said and Id like to be able to find it. It included the words keep a promise, smile, pick a diasy etc
it was overall a very moving experiance
Travelling back from a holiday in Ireland to our home in germany we decided to stop in Salisbury. And : this was one of the highlights of our holiday ! The heartily welcome, the personal guide and , of coure, this most beautiful catherdral made our visit to a very special one. And we were faszinated by the modern sculptures in and around the church.
Thanks very much.
Debby Jones I would love to visit there.
Nicolas I visited Salisbury in 2008. It was incredible and the Cathedral is amazing and magnificent. I'm from Argentina and always remember the days I spent in the magical England.

We visited Salisbury from Thurs 11th to Sunday 14th and had a most marvellous enjoyable stay in the city. We had a tour of the cathedral on Friday, it was just the two of us, which made the tour feel personal and the guide was very knowlegable and delightful. It added to our visit, as we would not have known what we were looking at otherwise. Every member of staff we encountered was very friendly and welcoming and knowledgeable.
Gavin also took part in the tower tour on Saturday and found the guide, John Hardcastle, to be very accommodating and informative. It was a very enjoyable visit and we cannot wait to return.
On a recent visit from Australia to Salisbury, the number of places I had intended to visit in the city was drastically reduced by the fascination I found in everything at the cathedral, largely due, I think, to the wonderfully comprehensive tour I enjoyed with one of your volunteer guides, an elderly gentleman whose affection for the cathedral was matched by his breadth of knowledge.
And now I have just come across the excellent web site, which further adds to my understanding of the cathedral.
Congratulations to the designers who have produced a site that moves effortlessly from section to section. Also impressive is the large number of extremely interesting and informative entries in the news and events sections, and the effort made to show the vital work done by people in the works, glazing and other departments of the cathedral.
As an Australian visiting great centres of worship in a church that is by law established, it seemed incomprehensible to read the sign one finds in most English cathedrals that refers to the fact that they do not receive any financial assistance from the state. The imagination, organization and dedication that is needed in each place, Salisbury included, to surmount this extraordinary deficit is inspiring, and my prayers will be added to all the others.
With the tower tour unavailable at the time of my visit, I thought I might be able to manage it virtually, but I seem unable to find any visual material on this and other fascinating parts of your great church.
With my very best wishes,
D. Moore I am looking forward to my visit in september 2010. The gallery is beautiful. I can only imagine my visit in person.
R L Coschignano My family and I were fortunate to visit the UK in 2005 from the US. Your Cathedral was, without a doubt, the most awe inspiring place of worship we visited! My girls, ages 10 and 7 at the time, stood next to us outside and gaped at the structure for a good quarter hour before we could even go in. The interior is magnificent, and the history incredible! My girls really enjoyed the treasure hunt they were doing at the time. It was a phenominal visit!
