Whatever your reason for visiting Salisbury, you can’t help but marvel at its remarkable cathedral, featuring Britain’s tallest spire, largest cloister, and best preserved Magna Carta (AD 1215), of which there are only four original copies. Built in the 13th Century, the cathedral is one of the leading examples of early English Gothic architecture. Visitors can take the tower tour (332 steps) and admire the newly restored Chapter House, the world’s oldest working mechanical clock, intricately carved monuments and tombs, and the famous Father Willis Organ.
