I didn't know there was a Cathedral but deffo worth a visit. Not the largest Cathedral in the world, but the pictures on the website definately make it worth a repeat visit. Warm, welcoming and a truly contemplative ambience. A fascinating insight into local history.

We visit every week to sit and reflect in the beautiful sanctuary of the cathedral. It is always so peaceful. The Christmas Tree festival was brilliant, such wonderful decorated trees. Would thoroughly recommend for the history there and the beauty inside.
