Such a lovely Cathedral with so many interesting things to see. The grounds are lovely too. There is also the old ruins with guided tour which are very interesting

An enigmatic experience I have enjoyed visiting for over 50 years, this Cathedral is nestled in a quiet valley surrounded by much older Ecclesiastical buildings. Perfect for strolling around and contemplating life whilst listening to the huge families of 'Jackdaws' in their daily clatter & tumble!

This cathedral is worth a visit if you're in a range of 50miles.
The older building is now partially destroyed but the church itself is still active with services and celebrations.
Free access to the church.
The place is amazing, with gravestones all over the garden and a full view of the site from uphill.
Always open, free access.
You have to pay £4 to access the court and to get inside the semi-destroyed building. It closes at 5pm.
Definitely recommended and worth a visit.

Our first visit to Britain’s smallest city but well worth the effort.
The cathedral is set in beautiful grounds, accentuated at this time of year with tons of pretty daffodils!
Free entry to the cathedral, voluntary donations preferred.
Small shop and cafe.
A very interesting building, which, unusually, slopes up hill towards the altar.
The main wooden ceiling is very impressive.
The quire ceiling is beautifully painted.
Lots of small chapels too, plenty to take in.
A great place to visit.

It's one of those iconic places - the smallest cathedral city in the UK, but well worth the endeavour if you find yourself anywhere nearby. Hugely important in the early middle ages, two pilgrimages was worth a pilgrimage to Rome, and three visits equal to a visit to Jerusalem. Drive the country roads to get there and you'll realise why.
