“Really Beautiful building, worth a visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

We decided to visit the Cathedral as we were walking by and it looked so inviting. The Cathedral had disabled/pushchair access and is easy to get around, in and out. The baptism font at the rear of the Cathedral is really beautiful and has an amazing history of being buried by the stone mason to save it being destroyed when they we invaded by the Scots. The Cathedral has a lovely atmosphere and worth a vist just to look at a magnificent specimen of architecture or to light a candle for a loved one and maybe say a prayer.
