A must SD attraction.

A great tourist site see and its free. It's easy to find because it's massive and right in the town centre.

Went on a very interesting tour to the top of the tower. You get to see and learn about the art of bell ringing, following by the great views from the top. The walk to the top isn't too difficult as there are a few stops on the way up to see the bells and where they are rung from.... More

The most beautiful stain glass windows we have seen. An inspiring building with free tours by guides. From the tiled floors to the fan vaulted ceilings, this should definitely be on your "places to visit" list.

One of the most spectacular buildings in Britain and there are no compulsory charges to visit. Please give generously towards the upkeep as such buildings are expensive to maintain and we must try to help as best we can to help the Dean and Chapter keep them open to all for free.

Welcomed by a man at the door but felt very uncomfortable. Wish an entrance fee was charged rather than £3 to use a camera and requesting voluntary £5 per visitor. The Cathedral was very interesting and the cloisters an area used during the filming of Harry Potter.

Gloucester Cathedral is magnificent with the stained glass and the big organ. Mesmerizing, just look up at the ceiling and be amazed. The lego project is really nice for children and adults as well. All for the good purpose of course, but it's also just fun!

My wife and I visited Gloucester and its Cathedral in July 2015. My wife's first ever visit to Gloucester. We found the cathedral to be spectacular with so much history and so much to see in this wonderful building. The donation price of £5 each we found reasonable as was the £3 for my photo authorisation. We spent quite some... More

Possibly one of the few Cathedrals that let you wonder about for free (donation only) see the Cloisters used in scenes from Happy Potter - apparently. Climb to the higher levels for a better look at the stain glass windows and view of the Cathedral. Or line up for a tour of the catacombs and older chapels. Check out a... More

The architecture and interior are simply breathaking. Also a must visit for Harry Potter Fans since parts from the film were filmed in the cathedral's corridors! Will visit again

This is a wonderful Cathedral with Cloisters and Crypt it is set in an old square with some old buildings around it. A short walk away is Gloucester Docks which has plenty of Restaurants Wine Bars even a Weatherspoons in a very relaxed setting
