Wonderful cathedral, if a little bit off-putting seeing it held up with timber structures!
Home to the world's oldest chiming clock and a spectacular astrological clock/machine!
Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

Cathedrals are my passion and I had the notion that this one's only shallow fame was being the tallest one but being nearby I had to go. Now despite only part of it remaining after the collapse of the nave, it is one of my favorites. The play of light, the atmosphere - it is more than just tall. The more recent supports to the architecture to save what's left are poignant. You "Pillars of the Earth" or Henry Adams readers should not miss this one!

Very nice and well worth a visit. The best attraction in the town ,beautiful building.
There is also a little museum opposite which is also free entry and it is nice for a look round.

This cathedral is certainly worth seeing. It has two fantastic clocks which certainly grabbed the interest of my two children. At the moment there is scaffolding taking up the whole height of the nave which stops you getting a really good view.

Extraordinary attempt at being the best! In addition it has two interesting clocks, beautiful stained-glass. be careful though because it closes at 6.30 pm.
