The Church of St Thomas Becket | Salisbury, Wiltshire

Located in the heart of Salisbury, is the church of St Thomas Becket. Becket is a celebrated religious figure due to his martyrdom - many believe he was murdered by King Henry II, for standing up for the church in disagreements with the crown.

It's worth visiting this 800-year old church to take a look at the 'Doom' painting above the chancel arch, perhaps St Thomas's most famous single feature. This painting was uncovered and restored in 1881, and has since had a complete restoration in 2019 - making it stable and fresh.
