- the world-famous and unique shopping Rows

- the much-photographed Eastgate Clock

- the beautiful riverside Groves

- the outside of the imposing, historic Cathedral which started as a Saxon Church and spent hundreds of years as a Benedictine Monastery before becoming Henry VIII's "new" Cathedral
