  • Beautiful inside, quite ornate, lovely organ case.. good lighting..
  • Informative, fascinating and long history, magnificent fan vaulting.
  • Sherbourne itself is lovely, visited on a Sunday and it was very calm. The majority of shops are closed but the cafes and pubs are open. The Cathedral itself is set it very well maintained grounds and best of all entrance is free to both. Donations accepted!

  • Dont miss the carving in the Choir stalls its rare and amazing.
