For the size of the town this really is an enormous building. Interesting from an architectural point of view. People on hand to answer questions.

“A haven of peace, tranquility and beauty”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

We never tire of visiting this magnificent cathedral in Nottinghamshire
It is one of the undiscovered gems of England
To enter its Norman doors and look around at the beautiful architecture is the most wonderous thing
The Green Man Chapel is unique and one of the wonders of English architecture
The staff are unfailing polite, knowledgeable and helpful

“An unexpected delight”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

This was a surprise. Our only encounters with Southwell in the past were to attend their splendid racecourse but this time we did the town. The Cathedral is the central attraction and is amazing for a community of this size. Well worth a visit to savour the majesty of the place and its surrounding buildings. Staff are also terrific.
