That beautiful building has stood for over a 1000 years.  Its walls ring with history.  You walk among the famous kings and queens and prime ministers and politicians and poets who are all buried there.  The building has been remodeled and renovated several times over the years and it is still a living church and a living monument to history.  This cathedral represents the religious changes in England and the political upheavals and the warring families and the famous and the infamous.  How did it come about?  Who did the additions and renovations?  How did the building survive during the war years?  Who was crowned king and/or queen there?  Who was married there?  Who is buried there?  So much history, come and hear the stories and find out about the people who literally made that building one of the great places on earth to see.
