    Beautiful church with an incredible history. The fee is £12.00 per adult which is fairly expensive to pay to visit a church and not quite in the spirit of things.

    A must see for tourists & locals. Steeped in fascinating British history w/ beautiful & sprawling grounds. Closes at 2pm Sunday. Go to the choral service at 3:15pm Sun for the cultural experience.

    If you're into churches, even if you're not religious, this is your place. Big, plenty of weird and historical objects and spaces including a garden and plenty of tour guides.

    Did you know? The oldest part of the building has rounded arches & small windows, whereas the latter extensions has pointy arches and big windows

    Beautiful cathedral with masterpiece stained glass windows. Admission is £12 for a year valid ticket (don't forget to say that you want one).

    Jaw dropping history. The place where Thomas Becket was murdered. Visit at least once in your life.

    Explore the Crypt & look for the ghostly silhouette of a monk on one of the pillars. See where Sir Thomas Becket was decapitated and brave the corridor of the White Lady... Then have a picnic outside! Read more

    Rip-off, don't even bother try take a photograph as you won't be able to get closer without paying. I can understanding paying to get in, but not to take a picture of the cathedral from the yard.

    £9.50 to visit a not so special church is a bit of a rip off to be honest. The entrance is the nicest. Visit the town. It's more beautiful. And for free.
