What to See
There is so much to see on a visit to the Cathedral, from beautifully carved monuments and tombs to our famous Father Willis Organ, regular art exhibitions, spectacular font and the world’s oldest working mechanical clock. It is home to the best preserved of only four surviving Magna Carta (AD1215) which is listed on the UNESCO ‘Memory of the World’ register. Marvel at Britain’s tallest spire which weighs 6,500 tons, and take a stroll around the 80-acre Cathedral Close – the largest in Britain.
