What I lastly want to tell you about, is all the Tomb's that are in the Cathedral.

Winchester Cathedral is famous for its chantry chapels, where daily masses were said for the bishops buried within them.
Some are, Cardinal Henry Beaufort (1404-47) is next to the final shrine of St Swithun.
Stephen Gardiner (1531-55) was the Roman Catholic bishop of Winchester, who officiated at the marriage of Mary Tudor (Queen Mary I) to Philip of Spain, which took place in Winchester Cathedral.
Then, in the 'Fishermen's Chapel' is the grave of Izaak Walton and I also saw Jane Austen's, it really was interesting reading and viewing!

Of course, there is heaps more of interest in the Cathedral, but if I tell and show you everything, then you won't need to go, and you really should, it is worth the money!
