  • Why would the Cloisters be closed between 12 o'clock and 2PM? This is most inconvenient for visitors .  more »
  • The whole area around the Cathedral is interesting, including this part, and if you have the time and the energy then it's worth the diversion to have a look.  more »
  • Some interesting statues and wall painting pleasant if unexceptional. Like most of the venues here the reception played beautiful choral music. Very soothing.  more »
