The Cathedral attracts over one million visitors each
year and visitors are encouraged to share in the rich
beauty of this, the most complete medieval monastic
complex still standing in the UK.
A place of worship for over 1000 years, parts of the
Norman church begun in 1092 can still be seen in the
present building, which reflects all the Gothic architectural
styles. Discover the finest Quire stalls in Britain,

Picture; and a facsimile of Handel's Messiah first rehearsed
here. Beautiful monastic cloisters and garden.
Following your visit of the cathedral, enjoy some free
time to explore the city at your leisure. Perhaps browse
the shops for some interesting souvenirs of your visit
or learn more of the history of the city at one of the
museums before re-boarding your motorcoach for the return
journey to Liverpool.
