  • On arrival our dog was refused entry (they've never heard of the Bible verse which said the animals went into the Ark two by two) and although entry was free a donation of £4 was suggested. I'm glad I didn't pay because the nave was sealed off for preparations for a forthcoming play (£27 entry fee). The church was fairly busy and the shop was doing a fine trade (Jesus may well have overturned their tables). The refectory was the most attractive part of the visit with delicious looking food, interesting modern stained glass windows and reasonable prices. The cathedral church itself is not particularly attractive unlike say Lincoln or Wells, but is easily reached from the rest of the city.

  • Beautiful old building with even some of the original Norman stonework mixed amongst the medieval. Unlike a lot of cathedrals, no charge to go in only a polite request for a donation, which needless to say, we were more than pleased to do. The refectory is excellent value for money and very ethereal with a wonderfully peaceful atmosphere which pervade the whole building. The stained glass is wonderful and the whole experience was superb and well worth a visit.

  • Amazing old building with some great examples of stonework and stone carving. The cathedral is in a easy to access part of the city and has some great architectural elements. Well worth a visit and nice to see a well preserved building that has so much to offer to visitors. Would highly recommend a visit to anyone interested in history or architecture.

  • Breathtaking 'Event'-type experience where you're transported through time and space. You enter through a heavy medieval door and leave on wings two inches off the floor. Colour. High Art. Sculptures. Stained Glass and much much more.

  • Last year I visited to see an exhibition of sculpture housed within the Cathedral and its gardens. It was well worth the visit however the cathedral is worth visiting on its own accord with much to interest from the architecture and splendid sculptural and artistic features. There are exquisite mosaic reredos and tiled floors. Paid another visit to look more closely at the encaustic and incised tiles so for those interested I added some more photos.
