Ticket is reasonably pricey however you can spend a good 1.5 hours here wandering around the church and hall. the ticket is valid all day, so we visited the church in the morning and hall in afternoon. Get here early to avoid the queues.

You have to go here to see the Cathedral. Yes, in a university college. It predates the college now built around the church.

As far as I know, only members of the college can eat in the hall. It is not open to visitors for meals; only for touring when it is not being used for member meals.
