I really enjoyed walking the church. I took about 30-45 minutes or so, but you could easily spend an hour in here. It's a friendly place if you are looking for photos, too. The downstairs is simply amazing and is worth the visit alone. I...More

Beautiful cathedral. The staff is very helpful. The crypt is worth seeing too.

We bought the audio tour available at the door, which was a little confusing. There were numbers on the items, but not mentioned in the audio, so if you ever stop, or back up, you get lost in the tour. It is nice to hear...More

Although we enjoyed seeing the church, and especially its great stained glass, I don't think it was worth the price of admission. The crypt was sort of cool, and I was especially interested in the displays of costumes from the Tudors TV show, which I...More

Following the Rick Steve's suggestion of eating Burdocks F&C in the courtyard, I guilted myself into paying the admission price. I kicked myself as soon as I walked in, as I spent maybe 2 minutes walking around, then 10 more to force myself to try...More
