This isn’t the best cathedral ever. The steeple is ginormous. Inside it looks very boring. It’s tiny.

St Mary's is one of the smaller cathedrals but don't let that put you off going in. It is quiet and relaxing, the highlights being the many beautiful stained glass windows and the organ above the entrance. A visit is very much recommended.

Sadly, the cathedral is currently closed for repairs during work days, so I only got to see the outside. Looks nice. Hope to visit when the repairs are complete.

We attended Sunday Mass here during a few days visit to the city. It is a beautiful place with an impressive beamed ceiling and wonderful acoustics. The choir at the 11.30 service gave the Solemn Mass an extra dimension; glorious singing and a lovely setting...More

The cathedral can be found a short walk from the railway station. The Roman Catholic cathedral is small but has some interesting modern stained glass and interesting icons. There is also a lovely little coffee shop on site where snacks can be purchased.
