Latest Salisbury Cathedral parking reviews
Great spot - good value - lots of space - 10 minute walk to city centre - will use againMike
The space is spacious, located in a quiet, safe and easy to find residential area, but very close to the cathedral and the city center at the same time, just a 10-15 minute walk away. Much cheaper than other nearby car parks. Communication with the owner was good. Highly recommended!Debora
The car park was not too difficult to find, although we entered the wrong one at first. There were easily enough spaces when we arrived (about 1pm) and it was a short 15 minute walk to the cathedralAnny
1st time using this app to park here. Close to the cathedral as advertised. £7.50 for three hours’ stay. Would use this space again.Daisuke
5 mins from cathedral and 7mins from town, great parking spot. It is narrow so be confident in your width navigation. Also, it was £7.50 for our period and it’s only £7 all day in Cathedral Close ( grounds of the cathedral) and FREE for NTrust members so if we had known that we would have parked for free...Ruth
An excellent facility: simple, straightforward and remarkable value. I'll definitely use this again if visiting Salisbury.Peter
Good little parking spot and the owner was great and exceptionally helpful.. Thankyou!!Alison
Easy to use with spaces always available. Kept my receipt for displaying on dashboard and only got checked by staff once when temporarily switching cars for a while.Rebecca
