The Cathedral Churches of England: Their Architecture, History, And Antiques with Bibliography, Itinerary & Glossary; A Practical Handbook For Students and Travellers by Pratt, Helen Marshall and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at   Europe - Private driver for English cathedral tour? - My cousin and her friend, both late 60s, want to tour Anglican cathedrals in England in June of , for perhaps two weeks. They are already.

Many years ago I wrote a book about British cathedrals and was surprised to discover how many of them there are, if you spread the net wide enough. And . This itinerary starts in London's parks and palaces, moves through the suburb of Royal Tunbridge Wells for nearby treasure houses, heads to the cathedral of Salisbury and the magnificent manors of.

The book also skips back and forth to the same buildings over various chapters, due to the diverse amount of work from different periods in every English cathedral. This is not jarring at all if you read with the expectation of an overview of the style, rather than an area-by-area analysis of individual buildings/5(29).   A beautiful coffee table book. Each cathedral has a whole page photo of the nave, which will particularly appeal to architecture and heritage enthusiasts. There is some writing, but mostly this is a visual book. It would perhaps make a good gift for non-English readers/visitors who might appreciate a piece of English history/5(12).
