“Fascinating”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

We went with a small group on a guided tour with an excellent guide who gave a great insight into many aspects of the Minster -and the restoration projects that are underway. Took around 45 minutes. Cost was £8.50 which covers entry for 12 months if you wish to revisit.

“Glorious architecture and a real sense of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2012

We visited the Minster on a Saturday, and went on a guided tour by an excellent volunteer guide who was very knowledgeable and friendly. The architecture was absolutely glorious and majestic, and there is a sense of history round every corner. On Easter Sunday we attended the main morning service, and were very impressed with the dignified ceremonial and the beautiful singing. If Gothic grandeur is your thing, it doesn't get much better than this!
