Journalist and author Sir Simon Jenkins gives a personal and often funny insight into the history and place of cathedrals in English life.
England’s cathedrals attract visits from roughly half the population every year. Jenkins says they remain unequalled today in their size and splendour. They reflect the vicissitudes of history, are custodians of culture and home to the rituals of civic life. Jenkins goes on a tour of England and its history through its cathedrals and offers a guide on the best ones to visit.
Jenkins writes for the Guardian. He is a former editor of The Times and the Evening Standard and a former chair of the National Trust. His books include England’s Thousand Best Churches.
