Stunning to look at, and has had restoration work on outside, but pricey to go in. Outside setting of the cathedral green is delightful shame about all the homeless people hanging around swearing and shouting at one end, plus your harrased for money as you...More

The outside architecture is stunning. You can choose to have a guide but we didn’t. Lots to see and a good gift shop.

Very lovely and impressive architecture however 7.50 each was higher than we were expecting. There was an option to join a tour but we passed and pondered about on our own. Not huge but organ and stain glass beautiful.

Lovely place but you should not have to pay to visit any church. Would much rather make a donation.Apart from that it is a lovely place in a lovely setting in a lovely city.
