  • A very beautiful place of worship to visit. With a 1300 year history it is brimming with things to see and do. From tiny people's messy church to celebration of services daily and concerts and historical lectures. Week worth a visit. With only a request for a donation which you can afford.
  • A stunning, medieval Cathedral that is well worth a visit. Brimming with history and beautiful architecture!
  • Good to invite donations rather than charging for entry. Well worth a visit
  • A large, stunning cathedral with a variety of events and activities throughout the year. Make sure you explore chapels on the first floor and allow over an hour to take it all in. Parking is available around the cathedral for free. Close to the town centre so an opportunity to visit the centre at the same time. Don't miss out Erasmus Darwin's Gardens opposite the cathedral.
  • The only Medieval 3 spired cathedral in England. Beautiful and serene.
