We make a point to always visit city cathedrals when we travel. This is a lovely one and well worthh a look around. There is also lots of valuable information scattered throughout. I particularly found it interesting about William Penn's connections.

Cathedral itself was very interesting but there was also a fascinating exhibition of photographs (taken by women) of women active in WW1.

The cathedral is located close to the city centre, the central library being next door and a lovely park in front. The interior is ornate especially the ceiling. There isn't an admission fee but donations are accepted.

A really special and unusual feature of the cathedral are the Home Front stained glass windows. It is lovely to see a more modern aspect like this in a cathedral from around the 16th century, it was an abbey prior to this. It really is...More
