We got up pretty early this morning (by our standards) and went in search of breakfast and seeing the town. After a traditional English breakfast, we began our walk around the city's wall. We didn't get too far before we came to the cathedral and went in for a walk around. At the same time we had to leave the cathedral, because of a Good Friday service, it began to pour down with rain. We soldiered on and continued our walk around the wall.
