A beautiful cathedral with beautiful architecture and stained glass windows. Shame about the renovation work as we couldn't get to see everything. Please visit and make a donation.

Gloucester Cathedral is well worth a visit and its cloisters have magnificent fan vaulting. Our cathedral guide could not have been more accommodating as we visited after official hours but she still took us to the crypt. We stayed for Choral Evensong that was exquisitely...More

Impressive Cathedral with lovely historic interiors. Shame about the external work going on but hopefully this will improve the experience in the future.

The Cathedral visit is well worthwhile - was left with a humble sense of awe at the very, very long history that precedes us and what amazing things our forebears accomplished... incredible architecture spanning the period 1080 - 1450 AD. In awe of the Majesty...More

This place is gorgeous, and has a ton to see and learn about. Turns out the cloister was used for the filming of Harry Potter. The only thing is the outside area is being redone, so there's fencing and construction material everywhere outside, including lots...More
