St Woolos is a beautiful small cathedral with many impressive features. The Norman arches are in excellent condition and like all the other features, quite exquisite. It is a cool, calming place and I would recommend a visit. The old and the "new" blend in...More

The cathedral has been tastefully modernised retaining a very sacred feel to the building. The choir stalls are new and the organ was renovated recently. It has four manuals, and amazing 32 foot stop!
