Visit highlights include the imposing pillars of the Norman Nave, the beautiful fan vaulted Cloister made famous around the world by appearing as Hogwarts School in the Harry Potter films, the elaborate tomb of King Edward II and the magnificent medieval Great East Window which is the size of a tennis court!
