It was such a delight touring this wonderful building and learning of its history. Set in a lovely location beside the river and right next to the city centre. We also caught the choir an organist practising which sounded really special and made the visit extra nice. A "must visit" place.

The ambiance was superb. Excellent staff, very attentive and knowledgeable.This is a wonderful cathedral with strong links to mediaeval royalty and the Magna Carter. A must visit for any American tourists. Direct access to the river and a delightful walk back into the town. We spent the best part of an afternoon exploring and could have spent more time there....
