This cathedral just beautiful. The town is enchanting too, exactly what you imaging an old English Village would look like. What was really special is that it was not too touristy. It is a real working place.

Is it possible to pay the suggested donation with a credit card (VISA)? We are going to visit for a couple hours between landing at Heathrow and leaving for a cruise out of Southampton. We would prefer not to convert much cash into pounds as we will only by in the UK for a few hours.
