I like Winchester Cathedral, although it is a shame that it is now only possible to get in by queuing
and paying the entrance fee, which includes the many fascinating treasures housed in the Cathedral. The main thing that I wanted to see was the mortuary chests containing the bones of Saxon kings, such as Canute and Ethelred, but the chests are not on display. Also, I was not provided with information about all the attractions which were included. There was encouragement to make a Gift Aid donation, with a free tea or coffee in the refectory included in the price. This was very busy, but a pleasant cafe.
The Cathedral is one of the best in England and seeing Jane Austen's grave is always worth the visit.
