This is an amazing building with a huge entry doorway . Inside the gothic architecture is breath taking. The sheer scale of everything is mind blowing. That such buildings could be so beautifully made so many years ago is really fantastic. It's easy to understand how worshippers all those years ago would be impressed by the splendour of their Gods... More

Have seen so many Cathedrals...... This one is certainly different and well worth a visit. Probably a good idea to rent the audio from the tourist office (we didn't.) Had brochures which conflicted with information inside so a bit confusing.

Largest cathedral in France. You can fit 2 Notre Dames inside. Also John the Baptist's head is there. What else do you need to know!?

I didn't manage to go in. I can only comment on light show. It was good but don't expect anything exciting. It was more of a story with lights bringing the architecture to life. Don't expect a proper laser show.

I'm not a churchgoer but this is definitely worth a visit! It's breath taking. The glass it also very colourful and on a sunny day very pretty.

I only stayed an hour or less on the way from Paris to Calais, but this was worth the detour. The extraordinary West front leads to the light-filled, nave, one of the highest I have seen, which shelters an extraordinary collection of images of bible stories and historical references. John the Baptist figures prominently, and there is a relic of... More

Brilliant inside and out! If you have an opportunity to see the laser light show on the facade it is fantastic, amazing. And free.
