Debbie Barrand I visited Salisbury over the weekend of 5-6 July 2008 and thoroughly enjoyed the concert of the music of Vaughan Williams that was held in the cathedral on Saturday night. I spent much of Sunday exploring the cathedal which is a beautiful building, I found it quite overwhelming, and I also enjoyed climbing the tower.
Anthony Trouern-Trend I grew up in Salisbury and attended Bishop Wordsworth's School. I emigrated to the US in 1967 and have returned to Salisbury many times, but never have I been as thrilled as I was on June 11, 2008, when we returned and saw the magnificent renovations that have been completed both within and without this magnificent Cathedral. All those repsonsible are truly guardians of English heritage. A huge "thank you" to all.
Linda Bowman Reading "Sarum," fiction of course, but your photo gallery brings the book to life for me. Hope to see the cathedral, close, and city in the next few years,
Hilary Ducker I've just moved to Salisbury.My very 1st weekend here was Open Day and I attended Evensong.The organ music and the lovely choir lifted me up(moving to a completely new place is rather stressful)and I cycled home humming ! Thank you.
Brian Hartnett My wife Kathy and I have come from Connecticut in the States and visited your beautiful Cathedral on two separate occasions. If we could we'd live in that lovely part of England, within sight of that beautiful spire, and be part of your religious community. Standing on the hill of old Sarum site and seeing the tower of the "new' 750 year old structure gives one an incredible sense of the continuity of faith. What a mission you have. Thank you for being such a living church.
Nancy Cope, New Mexico, USA I am reading "Sarum" by Edward Rutherford and wanted to see how the cathedral looked. I was in awe when I saw the first photo of it on your site. The photos have brought all Rutherford's descriptions to life. It is more gorgeous looking than I could ever imagine. What a wonderful structure in which to worship God.

We had the wonderful experience of visiting this magnificent cathedral in 2007. We are researching my family tree and to our utter delight when reading one of the old documents of the College of Matrons on display in a showcase in the Close I found my maiden name of Sullings. It was dated 13 Feb. 1684. We are now trying to search out the connection from Wanstead (London area) family roots to Salisbury. Also, we have a picture of my grandfather Levi Collins (my mothers' side) in clerical robes in the churchyard of St. Thomas church dated 1869.
We need another trip back to England to enjoy more of our rich Christian heritage.
Rene van Wyngaarden My huband and I visited Brittain during Spring of 1995. On our way to Bath we also stopped over in Sallisbury. Wandering in awe (we are not used to churches this old and this huge back home in South Africa) it was 12 o'clock Time for daily prayers. We were asked to stand still for the time being and the Rev. started praying ending his prayer with thanks to the Lord for all the tourists in the building. He prayed for them to be blessed, taken care of and lastly for their families all over the world. Needless to say by that time I was weeping but so comforted knowing that God are keeping my loved ones save back in Jo'burg! I never had a chance to thank you. After all this time the memory is still vivid. God bless
Veronica Donoghue I visited your beautiful cathedral on 5/4/08, and would like to say my visit was extremely interesting and informative by your cathedral staff.
Gerry Hattan Ever time that I visit this wonderful structure it is like returning home again. Bless all those who have have worked over the centuries to preserve it for those who are privileged to rejoice in it today.
