Beautiful building. Lovely Standard flags hanging up. Went for St Georges day parade it was very moving to see the standard flags handed over. Very old building but beautiful.

Quite small for a cathedral but perfectly formed. The cafe well worth a visit. I've dropped in a lot of lunchtimes for a bit of peace in a busy city
