Commemoration on 6 July Will Restrict Access to The Close

A commemorative event to celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the Army Air Corps on Thursday July 6th will cause disruption to the Salisbury Cathedral Close.

There will be a formal military parade on the West Lawn, followed by a service in Salisbury Cathedral with invited guests.

Anyone wishing to gain access into the Close by vehicle this day must arrive by 11.30 am. Without exception, only those cars whose drivers have provided the Salisbury Cathedral a car registration by 29 June will be permitted to enter.

No vehicle movement will be allowed from 11.30am to 14.00 (2pm). The lawns will be closed apart from an area outside the Bell Tower Tea Rooms and Chorister Green. Between 11.30 and 13.15 there will be restricted pedestrian access, especially along the West Wall. A one-way system will be in operation with vehicle entry via the High Street Gate and exit via the Harnham Gate. Pedestrians are respectfully asked to enter and exit via the High Street Gate only.

The Cathedral and Chapter House will be closed on 5th & 6th July, but Morning Worship and Evensong will take place as normal on both days.
