Winchester Cathedral is a Church of England cathedral in Winchester, Hampshire, England. It is one of the largest cathedrals in England, with the longest nave and greatest overall length of any Gothic cathedral in Europe.

Before entering the cathedral, I made a number of image of the exterior, including the above photograph of a couple of stunning red doors.

The view down the nave towards the east window gives some impression of how high and open the name is.

Within the choir the ceiling is even more majestic, though the space itself is smaller and less grand.

After finishing photographing in the nave and choir, I spend some time exploring the aisles and the wings of the cathedral, before packing up and heading out for the rest of the day.
