Very expensive to go in and a 5 year restoration is going on. So lots of scaffolding, workmen and noise, not very peaceful. Also the Chapter House was closed which I particularly wanted to see but I was not told that at the gate. I...More

Found the service highbrow, but enjoyed the building. Was made welcome by staff, who answered all questions with a smile.

This cathedral is the most beautiful one in all Kent. It has a lot of history which is explained by the volunteers if you want. Pricing is quite reasonable. Highly recommendable for families, couples, seniors and students.
