The mass looks very moving and is an ideal place for praying and quiet time to reflect. Also full of great statues inside.

Looking very majestic in it's home at the bottom of the valley, the cathedral is a fabulous place to visit for peace and tranquility. Recharge your batteries in the lovely gardens and visit the shop for local crafts. You really appreciate the workmanship of this magnificent building alongside the opposite ruin. Drink in the atmosphere then have a walk around... More

The choir were rehearsing whilst we were looking around. They sounded beautiful and I was sad not to be able to stay for Evensong. Unlike many larger cathedrals, this really feels like... More
