Very impressive even in comparison to the better known French cathedrals, but without crowds of tourists! Take you time to enjoy the details of XII decorations and feel the spirit of this place

Not my main interest, but very impressive. Glass and woodworking are exceptionally well presented. Well worth a visit as part of your tour of this beautiful city. It's stonework outside is fascinating and either better restore or preserved than is usual.

The original Plantagenet/Angevine vaulting. Different from most cathedrals in France and hence worth the stop. Great view looking back toward the river.
