Who's your favourite character from ThunderCats?

Ely Cathedral

Ely Cathedral

You are Ely Cathedral! You can make great gains out of a crisis - such as rebuilding your Norman crossing tower as a splendid octagon - and you cannot resist your flamboyant side! Wow! Better make way for a community of monks and a bishop to move into you!

Salisbury Cathedral

Salisbury Cathedral

You are prim, sensible Salisbury. The only English cathedral built on a virgin site, you display stylistic conformity in the Early English Gothic style! You're a bit boring, but don't worry, everybody likes you.

Exeter Cathedral

Exeter Cathedral

You are Exeter Cathedral. Stuck out in Devon on your own, you've basically gone a bit peculiar, you're a bit short and everyone makes fun of you. Don't let it get to you. It's not like this is a proper, legally binding quiz on the proper Buzzfeed site or something. Move on with your life.

Lincoln Cathedral

Lincoln Cathedral

You wanted to be Lincoln Cathedral! You are Lincoln Cathedral! Well done! You helped define the Early English Gothic style, do crazy stuff with vaults that makes late continental Gothic aesthetics look tame, and disseminate bar tracery into northern and central England with your new retrochoir! Wow!
