Beautiful and accessible

Wonderful historic building. Magna Carta. Beautiful grounds. Delicious cake!
Transport & Parking
I understand that you can book a blue badge parking space for £7 per day by the cathedral. We wanted to spend some time in the city centre, so we chose to park in the Cranebridge Road carpark (free parking for blue badge holders), which was a 5 - 10 minute wheel away.
Most areas of the main cathedral were accessible to an active wheelchair user. Unsurprisingly there were some areas (e.g. the tower!) that were off limits.
Spotless and well equipped with grab rails, shelves, etc etc.
A lovely passing curate offered to carry my cake to the table in the tearoom. A helpful member of staff opened a second curtain in the Magna Carta tent to let me get through without turning around.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
It was fantastic.
