As a former Benedictine monastery, this 12th century Cathedral still honours the monastic tradition of hospitality and visitors will receive a warm welcome.

Take a guided tour of the Cathedral or brave the heights of the tower to view the sights from on high. Spend some time exploring the cathedral precincts, abundant with plants and wildlife, and explore the Nave and its unique wooden painted medieval ceiling.

You can also enjoy the ‘Story of the Abbey’ exhibition and the interactive touch-screen stations at various points around the floor.

Those looking for some private contemplation should seek out the smaller private chapels, Katherine of Aragon's grave, and Mary Queen of Scots' former resting place.

Open all year there is a wide range of musical events, festivals and exhibitions to see as the Cathedral builds to its 900 years celebrations in 2018.
