Lovely cathedral full of history. Explanatory video is a must as is a visit to the museum in The Chapter House.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

An excellent place to visit, make sure you have plenty of time to take everything in, so much to see, lots of intersting things. The building itself is beautiful, superb windows, and it is all so well looked after. There is no entrance charge, all they ask is a donation of your choice.

“Not to be Missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Visit was past of a guided tour of the City walls.Fantastic church, with great history and many treasures on view. Dean Martin himself took about 15 minutes of his time to relay the history and interesting stories. Really brought it to life and he also relayed his story of the visit of BBC antic road show - when some of the treasures created a stir.

“Worth a Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Well worth making a visit into this lovely building. Plenty of information available inside and no admission charge - although they do ask for voluntary donations.
