Touring Great Britain's cathedral towns

Planning to visit the UK over the holidays to drink in the historic atmosphere and sing a few carols? Harriet O'Brien offers The Complete Guide to Cathedral Cities in the UK.

She writes:

"Magnificent stained glass, soaring vaults, resounding organs: British cathedrals exude power and importance. From Ely to Exeter, Bangor to Bradford, they present wonderfully civilised and civilising aspects of the nation. These spiritual and cultural hubs comprise an inherent part of Britain's rich history - and offer a fine selection of tourist attractions."
