Cathedrals

Britain’s splendid collection of cathedrals is a prime attraction for visitors and for good reason. These sacred buildings feature in some of history’s most famous works of art and literature, and many modern Hollywood productions. Fans of Harry Potter should visit Gloucester Cathedral where its cloisters became the corridors of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. York is a medieval city in Northern England with a profound heritage. Its gem – York Minster – is one of the most magnificent Gothic cathedrals in the world. Tours and trails there take you through 2,000 years of history and its huge stained glass panels are a remarkable sight. 8 miles south of Stonehenge is Salisbury Cathedral. This spectacular cathedral is over 800 years old and is home to the 1215 Magna Carta – one of only 4 in the world. The cathedral has the world’s oldest surviving clock and Britain’s tallest spire.
