“Free Entry! - £3 Minimum Donation Is Encouraged.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We visited for about 90 minutes - It's a great old building built in Red Sandstone. There are lots of interesting things to read & see - plus great stained glass.

It's well worth your time visiting & supporting.

“Beautiful and peaceful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Great place to escape the hustle and bustle of the Rows - even had a children's craft table. Explore the cloisters and the cloister garden. Weird bell tower away from the main building - I'd not seen this before!
