So much to see. Great history plus modern twists with space exhibition about Tim Peak. Obviously popular with many visitors.

A beautiful cathedral and some lovely stained glass windows. A practice for the performance of 900 voices was taking part. Wonderful to listen and watch. A bonus was th fact that Tim Peake’s Soyuz Spacecraft was being exhibited in the cathedral too!

This cathedral is actually one of Britain's finest but rarely gets the praise it deserves. Not only is it architecturally stunning with many early Norman features but it has a very rich history with links to both Mary Queen of Scots and Catherine of Aragon....More
