  • A beautiful building. In a lovely city. Free entry but they do ask for donations. Only fair considering the couple of hours you can easily stay in there. The staff are all friendly. There were a number of tours going on during our visit. Each guide oozing information about the history and design. The craftsmanship is absolutely outstanding in this place. I highly recommend visiting
  • Impressive Gothic cathedral with three spires close to the city centre. Unlike some religious buildings this one has a happy, busy feel to it. Welcoming staff and free admission although a donation towards the maintenance costs would be welcome.
  • Stunning and definitely worth a visit. The meet and greet at the entrance was such a loverly touch. So helpful to have people standing by to give you some knowledge around it. The touch screens are also a great idea.
  • Surprisingly fabulous cathedral that's in need of some restoration and on the exterior. Interior is worth a good look around.
  • Only 3 spired Cathedral in UK. Some splendid artefacts. books, and other antiquities including gold and silver from excavation works locally. A tranquil setting where you can take a picnic if you wish.
