This is my favourite English cathedral outside of St. Paul's in London. The intricate detail of the carvings, the beautiful rich colour of the stone, the scissor arches, the Billy Connelly-look-alike bishops, the astronomical clock - all fantastic, but the chapter house is my favourite. The individual carved faces by each of the seats are simply amazing. I could spend hours just in here looking these faces, imagining the discussions that must have been heard, the arguments that took place. Then, when you've had enough, the small tea room is a lovely place to rest before heading off to Vicars Close, or the pretty little shopping precinct.
