What a great way to start 2014. The staff were very warm and friendly and made us feel very welcome. Ripon Cathedral is a gem of a building - well worth a visit.

“Well-maintained cathedral”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

The cathedral was atmospheric and very well cared for. The gothic carvings were beautifully intricate and the stonework very fine indeed. No visit to Ripon would be complete without a look inside.

“Sedbergh School Choir recital”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

We attended the Christmas Carol service at York Minster the night before and the school choir of Sedbergh - knocked it into a cocked hat. Their performance was simply stunning, full of passion and enthusiasm. We'd love to see this choir perform again much more than a wasted visit to York Minster. The Cathedral is beautiful and well worth a visit.
