Owner description: Dating back to medieval times, this splendid Church of England cathedral features magnificent 14th- and 15th-century stained glass, stonework and elaborate tombs.

I think it is overpriced, however, it is clear from all the work going on that it's not cheap to maintain and restore. We had a guided tour by a lovely woman called Gwynn. She kept the tour light and interesting and made sure we had a good time.

Popped in on a rainy day, hadn't realised there was so much to it. Especially the lower level museum. A bit pricey though… £20 for two adults which didn't include the tower rooftop view which is extra...

Very good. Took a lot of pictures both inside and out. Once in you can wonder around at your own leisure. Beautiful and breathtaking.

Was planning on having quite a quick visit to the minster - we were keen to see inside but with 2 kids (age 4 & 6), we weren't sure they'd be very interested. However we were given the 'little explorer' backpacks at the entrance for them - had magnifying glass, binoculars, sketch pad, tape measure, I spy cards etc and suggestions of things to do - they loved it & were very interested in being there & meant we could have a good look round too - we stayed almost 2 hours inside! It really is beautiful insure & out. And the gift shop is great & reasonably priced too. Would definitely recommend visiting the Minster - even with kids in tow!

It is possible to spend literally hours walking round the minister, it is absolutely massive. We went on a guided tour hosted by June who was very good and provided lots of interesting information. We paid extra to walk to the top of the tower which was worth it but really tiring (275 windy steps- they do not let you go up if you have health problems or are claustrophobic) however it was really worth it as you can see for miles.
There is even an underground section which is deceptive lengthy with lots of artefacts. Very educational and definitely recommended.
