I don't often go into town now, but ended up here a few weeks ago with an old friend, mostly out of curiosity and to get out of the bustle of town. Really took me by surprise how ornate and beautiful this place is, so much history behind it as well. Lovely place to visit.

Great architecture, love the tower, you can spot it from almost everywhere in town, inside is beautiful as well, nice little leaflet with information available in many languages, for free (donations are appreciated), we were welcomed in, nice! Also walked the labyrinths, there were workshops about the labyrinths, but we were not able to attend a workshop, too bad!

It is in the central part of the city and seen from all around the place due to its massive structure. It is lovely from inside and very peaceful.

Very friendly and well presented. Interesting history. The building has been used and used again which makes you part of the history of the building.

Well signposted and easy to find, this is a lovely peaceful place in the city. Beautiful stained glass windows, modern as well as traditional, and there were people unobtrusively on hand to answer any questions.

What a beautiful church, so many stained glass windows & one gorgeous one that looked like a flower. My husband & I commented on how warm it was inside, cathedrals & churches in my experience have always been cold. There is also a lovely café on site. The day we were walking round a party of young school children were... More

Down from Scotland for the weekend attending a wedding we called into here by chance on the Saturday morning. Very helpful volunteers and plenty of encapsulated information sheets throughout. Previous Tripadvisor reviews have already covered most points but we were interested to find during our tour that "the great and the good" mentioned throughout the ages had had large families...

There are more spectacular cathedrals and there is a sense of the ordinary about the place. It does grow on you and the stained glass windows at the rear are magnificent, especially when the sun is playing with them.
