Marvellous, atmospheric place. Helpful staff add background to a beautiful building. The light through the windows is phenomenal.

What can be said about such a beautiful and peaceful place, the history is second to none, ask Lewis Carroll.

We visited on the day before the installation of the new dean and heard the organist practicing for the service. Wow! The setting, the music, his skill made me speechless. Don't miss the misericords in the choir - amazing 15th century carvings. The cathedral is beautiful and not too overwhelming. One of my favorites.

OK it is not as good as Durham but it is fascinating, steeped in history and with helpful guides around it is a pleasant way to spend an hour or so. If you go upstairs to the library there are models of the cathedral at different times in its history which are fascinating.
It is free unlike York.
