Although there was a lot of scaffolding for festival, every attempt mas made so that you could enjoy your visit. Pleasant welcome. Donation hoped for entry so all can visit. Very worthwhile paying for the separate Mappa Mundi exhibition. The guides there are very knowledgeable volunteers. Many thanks to them.

Beautiful cathedral. Very lucky to hear the last few minutes of the Philarmonia orchestra rehearsing Beethoven for the Three Choirs Festival.

Visited the Cathedral on a day when it was being prepared for a Choir competition, so the majority of the floor space was taken up by extra seating for the expected audience. This was only a minor inconvenience really & I suppose the Cathedral could have been closed to the public whilst preparations were being made so shouldn't complain really.... More

We went back in time by 500 years on a fascinating tour of the tower. Only 4 of us were on the your but two guides showed us places normal travellers do not venture. We walked up many, many steps to look down at the organ, beautiful tiles and statues. Further up we went into the bell tower to see... More

Attending the cathedral for services and concerts during the three choirs festival gave us plenty of time to see the cathedral. We found all the staff and volunteers we encountered there, to be helpful and pleasant. The small cafe coped well with busy periods and the toilets were clean despite very heavy use.

I have reviewed the Cathedral itself previously - it is a stunning building and well worth a visit to feel the history and for quiet reflection. The cafeteria however is a disaster and is a very poor ambassador for the Cathedral and Dean and Chapter. Expensive. Poor quality food - dry and desiccated. Unwelcoming and quite frankly rude service. We... More

The Mapi museum is superb and is staffed by marvelous volunteers who turn the event into an adventure in time.
