Have been here several times and best seen as part of a tour. There are many aspects that of the history that I did not know. Be sure to see the crypts

We chose seeing this cathedral over Westminster and were not dissapointed! The history and inferior were jaw dropping and we even climbed to the top of the dome to get a view from above. Was incredible.

We were blown away by the beauty and history of this church. The line starts about 30 minutes before it opens, so I would arrive early.

Most impressive, and the wonder of having survived WW2 bombing, history of many centuries preserved in one building and very well cared for. Do an approach from the Millennium bridge to enjoy a majestic view of the Cathedral from the river

Same story as my Tower of London visit - herded bus tour taken in the middle of holiday season. Never again. I'm retired so I have options and I'll definitely take time of year into consideration when planning my next vacation.

It was worth a visit and was not too crowded - no waiting. It is a self guided tour - you are given an audio set. There are historical crypts .
