“Breathtaking”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Was blown away by how wonderful this place is. We were so impressed my husband and I went back again two days later to revisit. The history of this place is amazing. I reccommend getting the audio tourguide which is part of the price of entering.

The Cathedral is a must especially if one can hear the choir singing

“Beautiful Space”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Beautiful cathedral with some exceptional medieval woodwork (main reason for my visit). I thought it was worth paying the entrance fee & the audio tour was informative without overload. Take your own earphones / earbuds if you can - I found the ones provided too big & uncomfortable to wear. Fortunately I had my Ipod with me & used the buds from that - perfect! Good lunch in the refectory afterwards made for a great visit.
