Salisbury Cathedral

Highly recommended
Built between 1220-1258, Salisbury Cathedral epitomises Early English architecture at its best and purest. Heightening of the tower and the construction of the 123 m-high spire were part of a second phase (1334-1380), conceived largely by Elias of Derham. The materials used included silvery-grey limestone from Chilmark and Purbeck marble.
