Visited on a very hot day and the interior was welcome relief. My support Dog was allowed to accompany me. Each time I come here I find something new.
I sacrificed lunch as I could not afford lunch AND entry fee. I appreciate it costs a lot of upkeep to run God's House, but I do not like being charged to pray!

Architectural masterpiece!
Absolutely stunning, but not worth the £8 entry fee! Enjoy the cathedral greens on a sunny day!

Not sure why we have to pay in order to get in to a holy place like this. It is ok to ask for a donation once inside but to charge a fee to get in was disappointing. So just looked outside and returned home.

Hidden away off the Main Street this is an architectural master piece
Not having visited many cathedrals this left me speechless the inside is amazing
Will definitely return when we have more time to explore it further
Lovely shop and cafe and a reasonable entry price

Beautiful cathedral. Beauty on the outside and the inside.
Acoustics was amazing as well.

Attended a choral and orchestral performance and we were allowed to wander about before the start of the show.

I notice to red doors not sure of the significance.
