Well maintained and clean. Many side chapels and stained glass windows. Visited in March and the Cathedral was empty and quiet. Enjoyed the silence. Quite close to main town square and plenty of cafes nearby.

A rather Grand Cathedral for such a small town. One must take a look around and inside it as its quite beautiful and popular at any time year

A beautiful example of medieval architecture in a setting with a gorgeous view. The gargoyles and bell tower sculptures alone are worth the visit.

Laon is a fine example of 12 and 13C French Gothic Architecture. Fine interior and west end facade. West portals are well worth spending time looking at the sculpture whilst the east end Rose Window stained glass is one of the finest in France

Fantastic historic location with wonderful architecture. It is truly amazing how these old buildings were designed and built several hundred years ago.

So glad we visited this cathedral it is beautiful, magnificent and full of history. Music playing quietly added to the atmosphere, full of colour and life. Felt how I think a church building should feel. Well,worth a visit.

Total surprise, huge, generally well maintained, no charge to sight-see, no change to visit the 'museum' to see all the church gold and silver vestments, platters, goblets etc. One of the highlights of our three week visit to France.

When in Laon we didn't go to Reims. From what I know the cathedral and the champagne cellars are the musts of the area.
