Overview

The Cathedral was only completed in 1978. It was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott when he was only 22 years old. It is a great space, without pillars or pews, the space is able to host huge concerts, exhibitions and fine dining on the main floor. The tower is 110m high and is the best view in the city.

This was a lovely building but a complete contrast the Metropolitan Cathedral which we had visited earlier.

The cathedral is stunning, amazing architecture and design. You can pay to access the roof with amazing views over the city, though the large cafe and shop do put a very commercial spin on the otherwise religious building.

The Anglican cathedral is remarkable: inside, it has the height and majesty of the wonderful cathedrals built many centuries ago, yet it was constructed in the twentieth century. Its modernity means it is warm and comfortable, but its soaring pillars and wondrous stained glass windows...More
