  • A fascinating 1920s reconstruction of several much older buildings into an extraordinary town house. Located just behind the Minster, it is in the perfect position to give views of the Chapter House and north transept.

Well worth a visit, though there isn't a great deal to interest young children.
  • It was great seeing it dressed up for Christmas. The guides were very helpful. The cafe provided good fresh refreshments
