Lovely, nicely scaled late romanesque, early Gothic structure, nave full of light, choir and apse rather dark. Beautiful glass, in 920 th year of uninterrupted use. French-English history embedded here: Eleanor of Aquitaine married Henry II of England here. Separate tower can be climbed for entrance fee.

Waked past this Cathedral many time during my stay here supporting the Wales team at Euro 16. The building is immense and has a separate tower with a beautiful gold statue at the top. We tried to visit on one occasion but it was closed for lunch and so didn't get another opportunity. There is work currently being completed where... More

Having first been disappointed to find it closed at lunchtime, we were delighted to arrive in time for the ordination of four deacons. Clearly we were wel enough dressed to be taken for guests, so were privileged to be there and hear the lovely singing. A special moment.

I absolutely love to visit churches in every city I am lucky enough to go to. I marvel at how they were able to build these incredible structures....both the size and the time it took. Can you imagine the project management over centuries?? This cathedral is ongoing a major restoration on the outside so be prepared for a lot of... More

We did not go inside but the cathedral is really beautiful on the outside. Except the exterior walls of the cathedral is dirty and the stone walls are all dark and really need some TLC.

We liked this cathedral because it was quite austere and not too ornate. Some how it was a very calming and relaxing place while still retaining a properly religious atmosphere.
