Don't be put off by the exterior. The ugly bell tower does the Cathedral no favours. Walk around to the "Front" and things get better. Inside even more so. It is light and airy and interesting

You can either drive up to the Cathedral, walk up the main steps from the end of Trafalgar street or walk up by some of the lovely pathways. There is a huge organ in the church and some lovely stain glass windows. Very peaceful inside....More
