  • Really liked the shape but the entrance fee was too high and I think it could stand some modernisation, this might have counted as entertainment to the Romans but the kids have got ipads now, their needs to be some more interaction!
  • Be sure to check it out while you're at the Minster. Not much to see, but why not since your'e there anyway? It is interesting. Read the plaque. Amazing to find such a well-preserved Roman artifact.
  • I didn't know what it was until I bonked into it trying to take a photo of the cathedral. A damn solid column if you ask me.
  • Very columny if you ask me
  • Fantastic column
