Fodor's Review

The original 7th-century church here was destroyed by the Vikings, though the Saxon crypt (AD 672) remains. The Romanesque transepts of the current cathedral date from the 12th century, while the west front (circa 1220) is an outstanding example of Early English Gothic. The nave was rebuilt in 1500 in a Perpendicular Gothic style. Note the finely carved choir stalls.
