    This small town was recommended to me as a good place to visit. The Abbey is beautiful and accessible. The town itself has a lovely range of independent shops. Well worth the trip!  more »

    The ceilings in here are breathtaking. There is a lot of stained glass and plenty of information about the Abbey's history.  more »

    For this church alone, it is worth to go to Sherborne. Wonderful English Gothic; indoor very harmonical without significant additions or modifications. The vaults in the nave, which is wonderful in its fineness is particularly surprising. We arrived in the late afternoon and were able to enjoy even a choral Evensong. If you're in the area, a must!

  • 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!
  • The Abbey is spectacular, i enjoyed my visit.
  • Dont miss the carving in the Choir stalls its rare and amazing.
