    £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.

    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.

    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
