Even with queues to get in; the Cathedral easily accommodates the masses, and is a welcome relief from the humidity outside.
A combination of quietness and subtle floral scents in the country’s longest intact medieval Cathedral creates a relaxed and soothing environment, in which to admire stunning and intricate flower displays.
One of the most eye catching pieces is an arrangement of blue and white hydrangeas and irises on a bed of ivy, and grapes of all things! Above this, blue lengths of string cascade (see what I did there) down from the already stunning ceiling, which quite spectacularly mirrors the display.
Throughout the Cathedral each flower arrangement is professionally arranged so the colour of each flower blends into the next. Each display has information about it on placards stood adjacently.
If you’re still wanting more after a tour of the Cathedral, there is a marquee of more harvest themed produce stalls including chocolates, homeopathies and toys. The Cathedral shop is appropriately decked out with floral gifts and pretty bunting. Be sure to stop for food and drink after all that hard work!
