The cathedral had a wonderful tour given by a woman who clearly loved giving tours. This is one of the great cathedrals of England and worth two hours. there was also a Magna Carter exhibit that was very interesting. if you are in the area, this is a must see.

Amazing Cathedral! As an architecture-lover this was very impressive experience for me but this is so magnificient that everyone can enjoy it. And special thanks to our guide John, he has very much knowledge about the cathedral and the tour was great, thanks to him. There is free tours, we highly recommend to join them.

This is a magnificent building both inside and out and as always I marvel at the standard of build so many years ago without the tools and equipment which we now use. The atmosphere inside is lovely and often the choir can be heard practicing for matins or evensong. I have had the privilege of singing in the Cathedral and... More

Lovely Cathedral well worth the visit. You are allowed to take photographs inside the cathedral, the stained glass window are beautiful. There is also a little coffee shop on the site. Spend some peaceful time in the grounds surrounding the Cathedral

Friendly helpful staff, flying visit for us, really impressive from outside. Saw magna carta too, no queues. You dont have to pay to get in, if you can't afford they are just glad of any donation or none, they will still let you in and be lovely :)

A lovely cathedral with lots of things to see. Magnificent quire stalls. The Magna Carta was an added bonus. Beautiful views from the cloisters. Decent coffee in the cafe.

This Gothic cathedral is beautiful inside & out. It also has the best preserved of 1 of the 4 original copies of the Magna Carta on display. It is a short walk from downtown & is in a lovely area. This is a must see if you are in the area.

Having been to the cathedral many times, we went this time to see the Magna Carta exhibition. The guides were friendly, helpful and attentive, happy to answer any questions. We had a look round the cathedral then at the Magna Carta exhibition. Apart from the main attraction there were lots of colourful banners and artwork (not to mention the Barons!)... More

This cathedral is unusual as the admission fee is voluntary. Of course, most people pay the recommended donation but at least the option is there. I made sure I said I wanted to use Giftaid too so they receive everything they can to preserve this wonderful piece if history. The architecture is stunning, as most cathedrals we have in our...
