You don't have to pay for tickets as you go in. It has a very fascinating architecture and views. I recommend you all to visit. It is a good example of a 12th Century cathedral

Its free to enter unlike so many others. Very helpful volunteers around and talks available too. Very good stained glass windows. An excellent organ and generally very good chamber and chapels. Well worth it.
