It's free to start with and there are many opportunities to make donations if you wish to. It is refreshing to be allowed access virtually everywhere and have staff to ask if you need information but to be left to enjoy the tranquility uninterrupted.

This cathedral is just stunning. There is so much to take in whether it be the stone/wood carvings, painted ceilings, stained glass, many ornate graves and memorials, or the peace of the crypt. And it hasn't been completely restored like some of the other more popular cathedrals, so there is an opportunity to have a discussion about the rich history... More

A cathedral ,that makes you want to return to time and time again. This August saw an exhibition of a past rector known as Woodbine Willy and his role in the first world war - fascinating.

A surprising cathedral with a long history and rather attractive interior. Well worth an hour or so of your time.
