“Boasting stunning architecture and incredible stained-glass windows, Gloucester Cathedral is a must-see if you’re staying in the city. The 11th Century building is the burial site of King Edward II, and is home to many architectural and artistic wonders, including the fan-faulted medieval cloisters and Great East Window. There’s plenty to see and do at the Cathedral, with a gift shop, café and regular exhibitions. Those with a keen eye may even recognise the cloisters as the corridors of Hogwarts – parts of the Harry Potter films were shot inside the cathedral! Free entry.”

“ A cathedral-sized wonder of English medieval architecture, with many treasures to reveal; massive Norman pillars, a huge famous east window, misericord seats carved with lively and entertaining scenes and tiles in many designs, manufactured by the monks. ”

Church
“The current Malmesbury Abbey was built in the 12th century. This building is the third abbey to stand on this site. The first was St Aldhelm’s earliest church, before he oversaw the construction of a larger, stone complex of churches located where the current graveyard lies. The present Abbey dates from 1180 and was added to in the following 200 years with a great spire that was the tallest building in England at the time, and a tower at the West End. But in the late 15th century – a generation before Henry VIII’s cull of the monasteries – the great spire fell, followed by the tower 100 years later. Only the nave of this once huge abbey remains.

“A golden stone building dating back to 689AD on a site which also once had a stone masonry; the masonry fell victim to Henry VIII’s dissolution and was partly destroyed, but the ruins cast a glimpse of how the monks would have lived.”

“St Mary’s church holds a very interesting past. The churchyard site was an ancient burial ground going back to Anglo-Saxon times, confirmed by the discovery of a buried Celtic cross, dating back to approximately 750AD, which now sits proudly in the entrance porch. It also holds the record for being the largest unsupported wooden ceiling in the country!”

“This is a beautiful small and simple Saxon church, over 1000 years old and unaltered by subsequent change, certainly worth a few minutes of time to look round. It's located next to a larger church, Holy Trinity, which is directly opposite and also worth a visit.”
