Pretty and peaceful cathedral

Being from Lincoln we are quite jaded when it comes to cathedrals, but this one was nice, pretty and free entry. Some beautiful and interesting tombs, definitely worth a visit.

It might be an age thing (turned 60 now) but of late I have come to appreciate the amazing architecture that exists in the many cathedrals in our land. One can only assume that there was much devotion and dedication that inspired the architects and craftspeople that gave us these great buildings. To think that they are still standing after... More

Gloucester cathedral is a major landmark in the town centre.The stained glass windows are stunning and deserve a lot of attention, I enjoyed walking round the cloisters with their arched grooves and enclosed courtyard. It truly is a magnificent cathedral, and it was good to see so many people visiting.

Stunning architecture, with the cloisters being the best in Europe. Every tomb or monument tells a story, with more being added all the time such as the Ivor Gurney windows. I cannot recommend this highly enough.

Great experience - must visit the crypt. Well worth the £5 donation. Experienced guides. A visit to the cloisters is very important. The tomb of Edward II is worth seeing.

Beautiful cathedral. Don't miss the tombs of Edward II and Robert Duke of Normandy, the cloisters and the view of the west window reflected in the lovely new font.

This amazing cathedral is a marvel of engineering and aesthetically incredible, and unlike Westminster Abby, you don't have to wait in a giant queue for hours to get in to enjoy it. It's best on a sunny day when the sun lights up the splendid windows, but even on a cloudy day the building is magnificent. it is worth taking... More
