I loved the setting of this Cathedral, truly beautiful on the river and as a Norman piece of architecture this is impressive. The stonework and the stained glass windows were beautifully preserved and although there could be more on offer to explain the history it was clearly a place where you could spend two to three hours merely browsing the...

Enjoyed the visit to the crypt... cool, full of historic facts, and a lovely place to sit and gather your thoughts. Finding King Johns tomb and reading the history of the Magna Carta was... More

The Cathedral is one of our favourite places to visit, it is a beautiful building a monument to a time when places of religion were built by artists, being in a lovely position by the river Severn enhances it's beauty

Beautiful and impressive cathedral. Unusually, entry was free - however you need to buy a £3 permit if you wish to take photos for personal use.

We had the chance to go to the Cathedral to watch a wedding my son and his wife were invited to. You are not allowed into the main wedding area but you can see and hear the ceremony taking place.

Went with my parents and really really enjoyed it. The cathedral itself is very interesting and you can do as little or as much walking around as you want. All is interesting a long the way but would really really recommend walking up the tower, although a long walk is well worth the views!!
