It's a beautiful cathedral, well worth a visit. See it in the evening too - all lit up looking magnificent. The Cloisters cafe does very good coffee and a good selection of food.

This is a must visit destination, the cathedral is a magnificent building in a stunning location. It is incredible that we can see such a thing as the Magna Carta, especially for free!
