We attended Nine Lessons and Carols here on Christmas Eve. We joined the queue to get in - no advance tickets - at 5.15am with more than 30 people ahead of us including some who had slept there all night in the rain and were finally let into the chapel for the service at 3pm and seated in the choir...

We visited during a walking tour arranged by the Tourist info. centre. The guide explained a lot about the history of this very impressive building and pointed out many features.

The architecture, the history ……. it is stunning, a special place. The vaulted ceiling is breathtaking, as are the stained glass windows. Allow time to see it all - the chapels on the side and the choir stalls.

entry may seem pricey but to see the largest vaulted ceiling in the world, it's worth it. Truly breath taking and a surprisingly enthral long exhibit

it is easy to buy a ticket (quite expensive!!), but difficult to find the entrance. Anyway, when you enter you with stop looking at the sealing. Stunning! Do not forget to enter every chapel and small exposition about construction on the right side. Go through to the choir and enjoy the wooden carvings. Beautiful!

This place is unique in the world! The beauty, lightness and spacetiousness of the architecture, the history, the painting by Rubens above the altar, the breathtaking stained windows, the organ, and the world famous singing of the choir all combine in a concert of worship service which is absolutely awesome!
