Many years since I visited last, but still as wonderful as ever. Everything you would expect in a great English cathedral and then the Mappa Mundi and the chained library as well. In line with most places these days there is now a good café on site. Also a nice setting quite near to the river.

If you can, take one of the guided tours of the cathedral. This added enormously to our enjoyment of the building and was most informative as well as being entertainingly presented. There's a lot to see and the history of the building covers a long period of time. The highlights have to include the chained library and the Mappa Mundi,... More

I've reviewed the Mappa Mundi / Magna Carta exhibition separately and instead now point out three permanent features not to be missed: (1) Choir with fine woodcarving and enormous bishop's chair, (2) Restored shrine of St Thomas Cantilupe that shows how colourful much of the interior must once have been and (3) Ethereal modern stained glass to commemorate Thomas Traherne....
