  • This museum displays over 120 stained glass panels, some of which are 800 years old. The displays allow you to appreciate the stained glass, up close at eye level. I found the tutors at workshop on copper fouling to be knowledgeable and patient.
  • A lovely adjunct to the main cathedral. Collection of stained glass from ancient to modern times with both religious and secular objects on display. Also look out for the stone gargoyles on the museum wall.
  • This place is fascinating and inspiring for stained glass makers.
