My rating of this Holy place relates to my disappointment on this visit, not to the Cathedral itself, which is outstandingly beautiful and well worth a visit. I visited this magnificent place a few years ago and was greatly impressed, not just by the architecture...More

I frequent the Cathedral for quiet contemplation and Prayers. It's a shame that Cathedrals gave to have Shops etc to raise money, when the Church is so wealthy.

A beautiful cathedral with the customary wooden carvings and impressive stained glass windows. A much needed sanctuary where you can appreciate the tranquility and engage in quiet contemplation.

Not one of the great cathedrals but interesting nonetheless. Super welcome from the volunteers who pointed out features of interest. Good guidebook and free leaflet if you don't want to pay for one. Don't miss the lovely monument in the bookshop!

Unusual,and calm atmosphere I visited in Lent so the atmosphere was rightly quite somber. Interesting layout and some huge unusual photographs on the wes wall. It is worth visiting and makes BG a donation to support this building
