Salisbury Cathedral is going Jurassic, or more accurately a little cretaceous, for a ‘Jurassic Weekend’ with a special programme of events organised especially for half term on Saturday October 26 – Monday 28 October.

Join us for dinosaur craft workshops, a special fossil trail and a spectacular prehistoric experience for kids – TeachRex – that includes an encounter with Tyrannosaurus Rex, the huge two-legged carnivorous dinosaur with powerful jaws and small claw-like front legs.

On show throughout the weekend Salisbury Museum have brought some of their Jurassic and Cretaceous collection out for this special event. These animals have been beautifully petrified over millions of years and are now part of the Geology Collection at the museum.

Did you Know? The Cathedral’s Jurassic connections aren’t just embedded in our stone, the Salisbury Diocese includes a long stretch of the 95 mile Jurassic Coastline including Durdle Door, the magnificent rock arch formed from the Portland limestone beds.
