Art & Architecture

Art & ArchitectureThe Cathedral is a rich resource for the study of architecture, from Romanesque to Perpendicular.

Admire the finest example of medieval cloisters in the country, with the earliest and most ornate remaining fan vaulting. Consider the materials and techniques used in construction, from crypt to tower. Appreciate the contributions of artists and craftsmen over the 900 years of the Cathedral's history.
