The marvelous Salisbury Cathedral in Wiltshire, England!
Although I was born and bred in Northern Ireland, I also have an affinity with the south of England. I spent 6 years living in Bournemouth, London and Dartford and loved every minute of my time there. In the 1980s, I first visited the wonderful Salisbury Cathedral, and then life went full circle in 2009 when I made the Cathedral one of my last tourist activities whilst still living in the UK.
Salisbury is a typical English city, old, historic and proud. Spot the highest Cathedral spire in the UK peering over its streets. It is traditionally English to the core; the streets are charming and pretty. It is historic and proud. Salisbury Cathedral has the tallest church spire in the whole of the United Kingdom!!

Funny enough, it’s bang in the centre of Salisbury, full directions here – Salisbury Cathedral. You’ll be hard pushed to miss it, if truth be told, the locals are also very proud of it, just ask them if you’re really stuck! A massive grassy park sits in the foreground of this English medieval spectacle.

Admiring the wonderful Salisbury Cathedral in Wiltshire in England in one of my last weeks living in the UK . There is no charge for the floor tours of Salisbury Cathedral, though they expect a donation, which I gave and £6.50 from adults. This goes towards the upkeep of the Cathedral, which has seen a lot of renovation work in its time.
While you’re in Salisbury get down to the river for a decent meal to relax.
While you’re in Salisbury stop by for some food down by the river and walk the city’s traditional, cobbled streets. Reminiscing on this reminds me of just how good places on your doorstep can be. Within days of my trip to Salisbury Cathedral, I was touring round Taiwan proving how random life can be.
The pretty streets of Salisbury are worth a look too.
