This cathedral is beautiful from the outside bu5 a little disappointing once you get in. It’s good that there is a suggested donation rather than an entrance fee.

The cathedral is imposing and lovely. We attended evensong, which I recommend if your are there. We sat behind the choir as they sang the hymns. It was moving. And then we were able to see the best of the four extant copies of the...More

The interior space in the cathedral is awe inspiring. The magna carta is neat to see, it was much smaller than I expected but still great to look at. Don't miss the battle flags hung on the sides of the cathedral which were really interesting...More
