The cathedral is mostly ruined and there is a few to see. You can have a walk around without paying the ticket to get in.

We were only going to take pictures of this classic old church and were invited in to look at the great architecture of the building. We decided to stay for the sermon and were invited to Tea and Toast afterwards. The small congregation was truly happy to talk to us and answer all of our questions. We went back a... More

The cathedral is surrounded by ruins and a cemetery. No fee for the visit. Worth the visit if you are in the area.

We happened to walk by the cathedral on our way to the river and stopped in. Hadn't planned to but glad we did. It's small compared to some of the other cathedrals we'd seen on our U.K. trip but beautiful nonetheless. It is easily accessible to walkers from all parts of the city and is in a lovely location next... More

We made on trip to the Cathedral and enjoyed the serenity. The atmosphere inside was peaceful and the building is well maintained, inside and outside. Definitely worth a visit.
