A must visit for Harry Potter fans

A good half day out, there are loads of interesting features, the crypt, largest stain glass window in England and the cloisters were featured in the Harry Potter movies

Wonderful visit to a very spiritual cathedral full of history and mystery , you have to take the monks tour of the old living quarters underneath the cathedral. Old in time, steeped in history yet ,for viewers of Harry Potter and Sherlock, always on our screens in one way or another.

Went there with my friends .the entry is free which is good. Staff welcoming and resourceful. Went on for a tour to the basement of the cathedral which gives a view about the history. Give it a try it's good.

When I first arrived at Gloucester Cathedral I had just missed the 2- 30 tower tour. Not by long though so make sure you are on time for these tours. The staff were very sympathetic and advised me that I could take a tour of the crypt. This is what I did and I didn't regret it. Our guide was... More

So many wonderful cathedrals are hard to visit in tourist season. This place is magnificent and not over crowded. Well worth the trip.

I'm not religious but I LOVE history, especially old buildings when you step inside you can feel hundreds of years rushing to meet you. Well worth a walk around and I would recommend a guided trip under the cathedral. Toilets are well maintained and the guides cheerful and helpful, a great place to spend a few hours.

Large cathedral, impressive enough with nice architecture, feels reasonably well maintained. Not as impressive as say York Minster or Westminster but nice nonetheless.

This is more than a Cathedral or place of worship but a location for history, with its additions, displays and echoes of the past it allows a visitor of any age to take a breath and look around, whether its Harry Potter that springs to mind or its Tombs and Memorials of past Kings, its certainly worth a visit and...
