G is for Glass. Stained glass. Said like a certain famous fictional spy who likes his favourite beverage shaken, not stirred.
The stained glass is a mix of historic and modern. I’m no expert, and really just enjoyed the pretty colours.

I love how a sort-of rainbow of colours transfers from nearby stained glass.
The Cathedral is steeped in rich history and definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area. And sampling bubbly at any of the nearby Champagne houses is enough of a reason to visit Reims (if you’re looking for an excuse). Although it’s probably best that you drink Champagne after visiting the Cathedral. Ahem.
