Considered a masterpiece of Early English Gothic architecture, Salisbury Cathedral and Magna Carta features the tallest spire in the UK, rising 123 m (404 ft) into the air. Completed between 1220 and 1258, this majestic building includes the largest cloister and cathedral close in the country, as well as the world’s oldest working clock, in service since 1386. Perhaps the cathedral’s most famous feature is a copy of the Magna Carta, regarded as the best preserved of the four originals still in existence.
