This is a beautiful cathedral and certainly worth a visit. There is no cost but we did leave a small donation. Situated close to city centre with nice grounds surrounding it.

I loved the Cathedral, very peaceful and atmospheric. There was a brilliant photographic exhibition running, of Women's roles in the First World War - all the photographs had been taken by women - excellent.

We really enjoyed looking around the Cathedral, there is lots of information on the walls about the tombs, art and history of the Cathedral. Really fascinating and the lovely lawns outside (College Green) are wonderful for picnics etc.
