Chapter House

The early 13th century, ten-sided Chapter House has hosted Parliament three times, and the College of Canons still meets here. Built as a meeting room to transact the business of the canons, the Dean’s throne is thought to date from the 1330s. The stained glass windows of the late nineteenth century give snapshots of the history of the Cathedral from William the Conqueror to John Wesley.*
