The cathedral is an awesome place particularly as it was only completed in the last few years. Beautiful stonework inside, magnificent ceiling. It’s how these places would have all looked when new. The choir were rehearsing too which was a bonus!

There’s a great textiles exhibition in the Cathedral - panels interpreting the Book of Revelation. I’m not a religious person but I thought it was excellent - learned a lot and really enjoyed the art.

The Cathedral is beautiful - although perhaps not quite as beautiful as others nearby. The volunteers were very friendly, and all were genuinely happy to welcome visitors. The cloisters were a little disappointing, but you oass through them on the way to the Treasury, which...More

Not one of England's great cathedrals, but fascinating nevertheless. Much smaller than most cathedrals and not as old as many, the current building dating back to 1503 in Perpendicular style. A lot of the cathedral dates to much more modern times, with the chancel being...More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for us. Yes, the additional work was to make us into a Cathedral, as we became in 1914. We are glad you enjoyed visiting and hope you may be able to return in the future.
