Brought my family to have a look around the Cathedral, amazing place! Why has the cafe stopped selling food? We wanted cakes, biscuits and some sweet treats, instead we were offered Alban buns, the ONLY thing they were selling?? Staff are brilliant, coffee was good, would love to know who made this idiotic decision?

Thank you for your review, and we are so glad that you enjoyed exploring the Cathedral. The Abbot's Kitchen was serving a very limited menu due to covid restrictions and we are happy to report that from today, 12 April, they are back open for takeaway and alfresco dining serving hot and cold drinks, snacks, cakes, and light lunches. We look forward to seeing you again soon!

This great looking building situated in the centre of the town has significant history ... longest Nave in the country, one of the longest, continuous, places of worship in the country, etc... The info boards dotted around the perimeter of the grounds give-up all the interesting facts. It's free to look around inside but do make a donation if you can.

Its a stunning piece of architecture, really beautiful building with a lot of history. I'm not a religious person but, I can appreciate what the cathedral represents. The grounds it is located in are also lovely, brilliant place to come for a walk or a picnic (maybe not so much in winter....) with friends, family and loved ones.

Seriously interesting cathedral. Whether you come to see the film location, or as a pilgrim, or have an interest in history. It is so worth the visit. Staff were amazing.
