I frequent the Cathedral for quiet contemplation and Prayers. It's a shame that Cathedrals gave to have Shops etc to raise money, when the Church is so wealthy.

A beautiful cathedral with the customary wooden carvings and impressive stained glass windows. A much needed sanctuary where you can appreciate the tranquility and engage in quiet contemplation.

Not one of the great cathedrals but interesting nonetheless. Super welcome from the volunteers who pointed out features of interest. Good guidebook and free leaflet if you don't want to pay for one. Don't miss the lovely monument in the bookshop!

I am sure this is a delightful cathedral church. Unfortunately I could not gain access. I came on two occasions, only to discover that the advertised opening times are meaningless. Early closing on both days. I thought Anglican cathedrals were places where regular services are...More
