I absolutely enjoyed every part of the Cathedral and enjoyed learning about the history behind it. The choir was singing at the time and the acoustics were brilliant.

Loved the cathedral, the informative guide and the garden to the rear. The building is in a central position with good shops and lots of eateries nearby.
