Unlike many other Cathedrals there is no charge to visit this lovely building. We were given a very informative tour by one of the Cathedral volunteer guides. Some interesting features make this "pocket sized" Cathedral a must visit when in Ripon.

The abbey has more to offer than it first appears. The guides are very friendly and helpful. Free entry, but donations welcome.

An imposing building. The interior is beautiful. An added plus is that there are several visitor advisors wandering around ready to provide information on the Cathedral. They speak with enthusiasm and enhanced our visit. Unlike some other Cathedrals they do not charge an entrance fee...More
