The Cathedral is imposing and breathtaking as its interior sweeps the spirit to the realms of the Spirit. The enthusiastic Guides impart not only detailed information but their love of Christ and their spiritual home. The stained glass spans the centuries and shows how different...More

Visited on one of the many sunny days at the start of July. Beautiful cathedral, well worth a look round. Some modern stained glass windows caused unusual lighting effects. Arrived too early to hang around for the next guided tour, but was happy pottering around...More

We entered from the south having previously visited the Refectory. The cloister approach is particularly fine especially so if when standing at the entrance you look back and appreciate the lovely gilded ceiling bosses down its entire length glinting in the light. We arrived at...More

The cathedral is free and well worth a visit. I wanted to go to the cathedral to pay my respects to Edith Cavell who was a nurse in the first world War. The building itself is magnificent.

A marvellous place to visit, especially worth it if the organ is in full tilt, the place is really quite something with some amazing architecture and utilising stone from Normandy. Look out for some medieval graffiti too.
