Visiting this Cathedral was a must do for me. I love churches, I found some quiet time, experienced the architecture, the explanations given, explored the gift shop and also enjoyed the tea-room.

We visited for evensong sung by Chorus ad Vincula, a visiting choir who were great. What a lovely setting , but please stop people taking videos, and photos, during services..this spoils the atmosphere and when we have visited other Cathedrals, this practice has been prohibited.
