This Cathedral is in the heart of the city. It is lovely and peaceful to walk around it and also to sit and pray. The ceiling is impressive

I have been to many cathedrals and was unimpressed with this one. Nobody about to answer questions. Cafe was functional.

Another grand, awesome, stunning cathedral. Take your time, explore the ceilings, the structure, the windows. You have to be impressed. Where else can you take those few moments to truly contemplate? This is a different visit and a time to take it slowly.

Interesting Cathedral although not my favourite Cathedral it is non the less as impressive in its build as others.An easy way to spend an hour or so in any weather and marvel at its construction.

I went on Sunday afternoon. A pitty, as some of the parts where booked nad you were not allowed. Also the restaurant. Due to low season also the cathedral shop is closed. It's nice to visit, also the little court garden with gravestones. But I did not get the wow effect as in many other cathedrals. ILike the free entrance... More

The stand out feature is the roof which runs at the same level from the east end to the nave. Not seen that before. The west end is standard Victorian neo-Gothic so a little less interesting. The cafe was closed which was a shame as would have liked to pay something to them.

After finding quite a few churches with only the exterias remaing, it was a privalidge to visit the Cathedral. Very peaceful, nice paintings and the prayer room was a nice place to sit and reflect. We didn't really like the smell of the church, it would be nice if they could have some nice incense to make it smell nicer.... More

Superb old building oozing history. The stained glass windows with the second world war figures in are interesting.
