We were both actually attacked in the cathedral grounds whilst sitting on the benches. Although we loved to go here, it just wasn't well-lit in the early dark evenings, and no CCTV.

Not very big but worth a visit if you like cathedrals. Work being done to move Richard III in. There is a coffee shop and book shop nearby. Wonderful welcome from a lovely volunteer, she was very helpful and welcoming. Made the visit for us. Thank you. Friday 14/11/2014 at 11am.

We were made welcome with coffee and home made cakes- a great variety on offer. The cathedral is undergoing renovation to accommodate Richard 3rd, but there is still a caring community to welcome you each day

preparations are going ahead for the bones of King Richard 3rd. to be placed in a tomb, being prepared for spring 2015. Local members of the church, help visitors and explain what changes are happening inside the church. A wonderful exhibition across the square gives a marvellous view of medieval life and a view of the kings first resting place.
