“One of the greats”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We used to live near and attend Durham Cathedral, so we have high standards - but Gloucester really was something else. We spent about 3 hours in and around the Cathedral, and very much wished that we had more time. Everything other recent visitors said is true, and it is hard to find other words to describe such a wonderful experience.

“Surprising Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Unexpectedly impressive cathedral. The old and modern parts are nicely combined. This is worth a visit for the stained glass windows alone.
