This is a very beautiful and welcoming church. Even if you are not a Christian, they are welcoming for everyone to come in and learn what role this church in history. It even has ties to the discovery of the USA!

If you happen to walk by, please go inside. I promise it'll be as beautiful as the outside! If you can get a tour, then please do, it will help you get to the tiny details you would otherwise miss if you do it all by yourself.

Only saw the cathedral from outside, but the architecture was very beautiful. About a 10 minute walk from Temple Mead station and another 10 minutes to the city centre.
