Not grand, like the Cathedral, but more intimately beautiful. The medieval mural, the angels on the ceiling, and the crest of Queen Elizabeth I were wonderful to see. It is well worth the visit here.

Located in the centre of Salisbury is this 13th century church with some excellent ceiling and wall paintings, and a lovely carved timber roof (1450). Located on the high street.

This is a smaller church very near the Salisbury Cathedral and will worth a visit. The murals are amazing and will teach you much about the medieval church. There is a self-tour and the docents are very helpful/knowledgeable.

This church has so many things to offer the visitor. There is a wonderful wooden ceiling with angels, a rare coat of arms of Queen Elizabeth I, and a very rare last judgement painting. Such a wonderful respite from the husstle of Salisbury.

The priest was still letting people in well after hours. It is a small house of worship and is overshadowed by the cathedral. The Doom painting is very clear and worth stopping for the visit. They also have a nice booklet on the parish which...More

This a pleasant old church in the centre of Salisbury. It's famous for it's Doom painting, but even without that, it'd still be a treat to visit. It's nowhere near as grand as the cathedral of course.

It may have been altered, rescued and adjusted but it is a must see in Salisbury. I’m still glowing with the pleasure of sitting quietly and marvelling at the myth created to keep mankind in order. The guides in the church are charming.
