Salisbury Catherdral Carol Service
Salisbury Cathedral Carol Service
Join us for a special carol concert exclusively for groups.
One of the most popular services of the Cathedral's year. Service at 2pm.
Hear the cathedral choir, sing along to your favourite carols then enjoy a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie afterwards in the atmospheric cloisters.
Salisbury Cathedral's spire is the tallest in Britian. It was added to the Cathedral in the mid-1300s and weighs around 6,600 tons. Today's spire is around three inches taller than the original as a result of restoration work done in the 1950s. It's believed that architects at the time might have forgotten to include the mortar in their calculations!
Come and see... Our magnificent flowing water font by sculptor William Pye. Britain's largest cloisters with landscaped garth. The beautiful Prisoner of Conscience window in the Trinity Chapel designed by Gabriel Loire in Chartres, France. The world's oldest working mechanical clock, which dates back to 1386. The turret clock, which has no face, has ticked more than 4.4 billion times since it was built.
Plus free time in Salisbury. Superbly situated in southern England's rural heartland, few destinations can match the amazing diversity. Salisbury has plenty of characterful places to see - some dating back to the 13th century - and a wide range of pubs, restaurants and tea rooms. A choice of arts and culture venues complement individual shops and regular street markets, and outside the city you will find charming country towns and villages
The Christmas market comprises of over 75 chalets, selling everything from the finest fudge and delicious goodies, to unique and hand craft gifts to suit everyone. Salisbury Christmas Market is inspired by the best of traditional European Christmas Markets, but will also have something very British about it too. Our exhibitors and caterers will be among the best in this country and all will have been especially selected for the high quality of their products, and the stylish way in which they present their chalets.
An important feature of the Salisbury Christmas Market is that the majority of the goods being sold will have been produced in Britain. the emphasis will be very much on unique and desirable gifts, food and drink, most of which will be supporting our own home economy. Needless to say no Christmas Market would be complete without the seasonal Gluhwein (mulled wine), Bratwurst (German sausage), Stollen and Lebkuchen (gingerbread) as well as our many delicious English specialities, and this Christmas Market will certainly be no exception!
