We went around the cathedral when the choir were rehearsing for Evensong and it was just wonderful. If you can go to one of the evening services the music would be great - I think that the phrase we used was haunting. Worth going even if you aren't normally somebody who goes to church

A beautiful cathedral with lots to explore, either by yourself or with a guide. No entrance fee but donations gratefully accepted.

Been in and out of the Cathedral over the last four years, and every time I go, I discover something new! So much history in one place, not to mention the stunning architecture and stain glass windows. As a history and architecture novice, the helpful information boards and guides really made the trips that much more engaging. I would recommend... More

We visited recently to see the statue of Edward Jenner who is a 8th time great grandad to my fiancé. The cathedral is beautiful. We loved walking around seeing where parts of Harry Potter were filmed. The whispering tunnel was amazing. Well worth a visit. Situated in the centre of the town so very easy to get to.

Took my granddaughter on her first visit to Gloucester to see where some of the Harry potter film was filmed. Also found a very peaceful and stunning place to visit. We were all impressed by the building and the volunteers who were so enthusiastic about the history and the building, came away knowing more about this beautiful building. We will... More

The most gorgeous cathedral! The burial effigies of the Duke of Normandy, King Osric, and King Edward II are among the attractions in this nearly 1000 year old church. The cloisters and gardens are stunning ( and featured in Harry Potter films, and most recently, Sherlock)..

I live in Gloucester so maybe I am biased, but I just love the Cathedral and surrounding area. It is a magnificent building inside and out, a must see if ever you visit Gloucester. The upkeep is continuous and the stone masons are brilliant and meticulous when replacing worn masonry. The cloisters and the enclosed garden are cool and calming.... More

I have been to Gloucester Cathedral countless times and I still find new things to see. It is one of my granddaughters favourite places and they will often ask to go. It is easy to imagine how it was used in the past and the sense of history is very strong. Some scenes from Harry Potter were filmed here and... More

Well worth a visit. Unusually it's free to get into and is a quiet haven in Gloucester. Very interesting wandering round the Cathedral and grounds.
