This is a very special place. The peace in the building is palpable. I loved the beautiful ceilings and the opportunity to pray in the many different chapels. 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

Went here with a friend with our local holiday company.. My one regret is that I never got to go down and go inside My friend has difficulty in walking and it was quiet steep to go down and get back, but am looking forward to a return trip, and go inside the Cathedral. From the outside it looked really... More

While visiting Cardiff we visited this cathedral which is very large but not really that elaborate, especially by European standards.

This imposing cathedral dominates the small city. The info boards about the grounds explain that there has been a place of worship here for many centuries. From the serenity you feel in the grounds you can certainly see it as a place for spiritual pilgrimage. The cathedral itself is in good repair, although you can see and feel how it... More

The St David's Cathedral in the tiny city of St David's is a gem. It's accessible and the guides are very helpful. Although on two levels it's possible for those in wheelchairs to see the whole building by accessing the upper part by going outside and using another door. Just ask a guide. They will happily point you in the... More

I liked that it said what age each pillar came from (15th century) and you were allowed to watch the services and listen to the priest. The worker who sold bibles was very friendly too.
