All I really need to say is Mappa Mundi, Chained Library and Magna Carta and your history buff appetite should be well stimulated. The volunteers on my visit were also very helpful and informative. If history is your thing you will spend quite a bit...More

Yes, it will. The Liturgy of the Passion is quite long - it probably won't finish until well after three o'clock - but once it is over the cathedral will be open until after Evening Prayer which is said at 5.30 pm in the... More
