An amazing cobbled street just near the cathedral. Amazing architecture. A priest walked by pulling a flat trolley which reminded me of Monty Python - Bring Out Your Dead!

A cute little street just 30 seconds away from the cathedral. Worth a look and a picture or two. Very pretty to look at, why not if you are visiting the cathedral this is worth a look.

I have never seen a row of houses both sides that look identical, and the architecture is well worth looking at, you can get some amazing photos

Get your cameras out you will not want to miss snapping this place. Totally unique. Houses date back to the 1300s. You may need to wait a bit to get a good photo, but worth it.

Completed in 1430, this medieval street is apparently the only one still in existence in England in which all the houses are still lived in. We visited this fascinating street on a Saturday afternoon and could not believe that there were very few people there....More

Just go and see it. It was such a delightful place to visit. If it wasn’t so empty and the bins weren’t out, I’d have thought it was just a film set.

Located next to the cathedral, Vicar's Close is definitely worth a visit, it's really beautiful. Despite the cathedral being busy, the close was very quiet. A must see.
