What to See

There is so much to see on a visit to our Cathedral which was built specifically with major processions in mind so there is plenty of space to relax and explore!


From beautifully carved monuments and tombs to our famous Father Willis Organ, regular art exhibitions, our spectacular infinity font and the world’s oldest working mechanical clock you won't be disappointed.


The Cathedral is home to the best preserved of only four surviving Magna Carta (AD1215) which is listed on the UNESCO ‘Memory of the World’ register. 

Come and 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.


Our Refectory Restaurant is the perfect place to relax over a cup of coffee - the glass ceiling means you can admire a view of the spire no matter the weather! No visit is complete without choosing a souvenir at our Gift Shop.
