Towers and flowers in cathedral tour

One of the seasonal arrangements created by Salisbury Cathedral’s flower team.

NEW for this year, Salisbury Cathedral in Wiltshire is offering specialist group tours for all lovers of flowers and flower arranging.

Hosted by members of the cathedral’s flower team, the tours are expected to take two hours and will include light refreshments.

Each tour begins with a short guided walk around the cathedral floor, drawing attention to its flower-themed architecture and windows, a specialist talk about cathedral flowers giving an insight into the best plants to use, and a demonstration of an arrangement that is suitable for a cathedral or church.

At certain times, groups will also be able to go ‘behind the scenes’ and visit the cathedral’s cutting garden.

Other specialist themed tour subjects offered by Salisbury Cathedral include embroidery, architecture, medieval glass, art and sculpture.
