Had my graduation here and it was wonderful. Lovely day and not too hot inside as was nearly 30 outside. Good range of local bars/cafes/restaurants around too.

Beautiful cathedral both from outside and inside. Located in the centre of the city with well maintained gardens outside. The inside is amazing, with high arched ceiling.

Having visited Bath Cathedral yesterday, on comparison this is by far a more peaceful cathedral. Not overrun with tourists taking photos, and a lot more informative with signs near the important artefacts and relics.

A warm and friendly welcome and great architecture. I was lucky as the choir were rehearsing for evensong so I could listen to some sacred music.

Just photographing gave me a sense of the History. The gothic era has always intrigued me since I visited Paris where I was consumed by all the French revolution buildings.

Located in the heart of the city at the bottom of Park Street it's hard to miss this beautiful cathedral. Understated but beautiful. Always welcoming, especially with the sun streaming through the windows and a choice rehearsing. The cafe is good value and an afternoon spent in the garden is wonderful. Don't miss it.

Gorgeous acoustics - had the privilege to sing at our friends wedding there. Beautiful building from 1500 to the modern day - look around and see the history in the stone, wood and artefacts. Worth a vist, with the gardens for contemplation, history and exploration.
