Extremely interesting and beautiful cathedral. We were lucky enough to have an in-house expert who was so informative that it really enhanced the visit even more. Great gift shop to look at after taking in this wonderful cathedral.

This is a lovely cathedral to visit. It is only small compared to some of the cathedrals I have visited over the years, but it is well worth a look. It has a lovely ceiling and stunning architecture, and it is set in lovely grounds.

Went here Sunday as was being shown around centre by a friend. I must admit that this took me by surprise. It was lovely inside and a service had just finished so a lot of pleasant people around. Worth a look

Large cathedral with an interesting star ceiling. You can even lie on a carpet and gaze up at this amazing site. There is a gentleman who can answer any questions visitors may have.

Not so beautiful from the outside, but take the time to go inside, a tranquil moment yards from the hustle and bustle of the town centre.
