We often walk around cathedrals admiring the stonework, and this was no exception. The building is very impressive. We were lucky as our visit coincided wit the choir learning a new recital, so the atmosphere was special

Lovely peaceful gardens outside the Mundi café. Good coffee and salad was good value. Would definitely recommend for a quiet lunch away from hustle and bustle of the town.

The Chained Librarly is magnificent as is the Mappa Mundy. The Cathedral is steeped in history and the shop has excellent information and cards. You can eat in the cafe and walk in the grounds.
