I adore this place. Such an astounding place of worship. Each and every time I have been here I feel in awe of the place. So calming, I could sit or wander all day in here. We visited Sunday Jan 25th 2015, whilst a service was on, the sound of the choir, all I can say is-breathtaking! Please do visit... More

Although not the largest of Cathedrals, Gloucester is one of the most architecturally harmonious. It was a delight to be able to walk round while Evensong was taking place in the Choir (or should that be Quire?). Impressive cloisters.

For:You should go here maybe not for a day out but defiantly 1-2 hours.For me I loved all the stained glass windows.The building is just beautiful a little dirty in some places maybe! Against:It's a shame they can't say much about Harry potter as it would be very interesting!! It's worth a look though!!

The cathedral was stunning and an enjoyable place to visit and I would recommend to anyone. The vast size of it was amazing with lots to explore and the cloisters were once home to the Harry Potter set. However, I felt it went over board with the requested "donations" for money (£5 per adult) and paying to take photos, while... More

This is a glorious cathedral. Pay the extra to take pictures is pose in the cloisters where they filmed Harry Potter. I sat in the stalls across from the tomb of a King and listened to choral evensong. A real treat. Beautiful traditional setting. There is a real sense of history and glory here. You can imagine the awe felt... More

Well worth a visit. Don't miss the guided tour in the crypt. Be aware that there is a fee to take photos and videos.

A market selling unique handcrafted items in a beautiful setting. Every half an hour the choir sang Christmas carols. I had been there earlier in the year for Crucible 2 a free exhibition in and outside the cathedral of 100 works of art.
