A combination of elevator and stairs takes visitors to the exterior heights of the tower and some grand views of the city and landscapes below. A small fee is required for the vista experience. « less

We had a short visit to the cathedral with children. The stained glass is amazing but the tower is a must. Two lifts and lots of steps takes you to a great view of the city but allows you to see the inner of the cathedral - amazing to see the bells! On the way back down stop halfway and... More

A not to miss attraction. Awe inspiring, soaring arches. A 20th century masterpiece. Make sure you see the Ladies Chapel, an exquisite blend of architecture and stained glass.

It was nice to visit. It didn't do anything more - you look at the surroundings and feel closer to your God or not as the case may be. The neon signs and cafe don't sit well, however I can understand the cafe needs the prophets to keep the place running. Religion can be such a subjective thing. We liked... More

Well worth the visit. Unfortunately we arrived when university commencement exercises were in swing and the main area was reserved for graduation. We did however get the opportunity to visit the tower. It is a must and we would take the 108 steps after the elevator to the 10th floor any day. Little scary if you are afraid of heights.... More

A very beautiful cathedral. However, keep in mind that it takes some time to go there from city centre.

From the exterior of this brick cathedral, one would have never imagined how marvelous the interiors look. I was so astonished by the recent date of the construction for the intricate details and the sheer size of the interior designs show such sophisticated techniques and workmanship that it did not seem like it was feasible of a cathedral of the...

Visited this beautiful Cathedral yesterday. My husband and I have visited many Cathedrals most of them much older than this one. It is without doubt a truly remarkable place. What you see on the outside really doesn't reflect the beauty that you see inside. The sheer vastness of the place takes your breath away and the stained glass is really... More

It surprises many to find that the cathederal is a modern building. It looks ancient. It has a very good cafe. There is also a very interesting arch. If you sit at one end you can whisper to someone at the other end. ASK THE STAFF.

Cathedral with lots of unusual features, although only a hundred or so years old. Has cafe and toilets as well as a little girt shop

Besides the Cathedral being such an awe inspiring, wondrous piece of architecture, it was such a pleasant place to visit. While we were there the choir was rehearsing which encouraged seated, peaceful contemplation. The stained glass windows are magnificent as one might expect. And just before leaving we popped into their small restaurant which served us a wonderful Sunday roast... More
