I have lived in Gloucester for 35yrs, thought I knew a lot about the cathedral until I took a guided tour. Takes some time but well worth while. I am lucky I can go back, but did have to leave the tour through other engagements.

I had this down as a 'maybe' on our Gloucestershire todo list, however upon seeing it we just had to go in. The building itself is just spectacular, vast and very interesting to explore. Among the highlights for me were the stained glass windows, in particular the Denny windows (you'll have to see for yourself - he has some similarly... More

It's all been said by previous reviews for a good and interesting visit. Stained glass windows amazing and being able to walk round the wispering and extra views was great. A must visit if in Gloucester.

We called into Gloucester Cathedral whilst having a walk around as I wanted my 17 year old just to have a look. I once lived in the area and just wanted to have another look. It is stunning as all these buildings are.

Well worth a visit. Really impressive. Go up to the whispering gallery if you get a chance. The tomb of Edward II is good too.

We spent a very enjoyable and informative 90 minutes in the cathedral doing a free guided tour. the guide was very knowledgeable and able to answer all of our questions. We didn't have time to do a crypt tour but will save it for our next visit.
