Lovely cathedral overall but as we had visited Durham the previous day it paled in comparison. Peaceful and quite interesting pieces of architecture and best of all-free to enter.

Loved Midnight Mass on my recent visit to Newcastle. Canon Clare MacLaren was officiating and she has the most beautiful speaking voice - sent shivers down my spine!
