The cathedral, the grounds situated in the smallest city in Wales are well worth a visit in pleasant weather when in Pembs.

The Cathedral is not set apart from other buildings, and you almost stumble upon it walking up Charles Street. However, entering through a simple side door brings you into an impressive building, bright and light. Well worth a visit if passing.

This is so stunning, it took our breath away. As you enter the light that floods through the main window was amazing.

Great to see so many worshippers in and out on an otherwise quiet afternoon. We would have liked to have read more about the 100 years of cathedral's existence. Great to see that our former West London school chaplain is now archbishop.
