Fantastic couple of hours spent in the cathedral and we were lucky to have someone telling us the history of the cathedral. It’s very beautiful and the grounds are wonderful.

I was singing here as part of a visiting choir while the resident choir were away. The Cathedral is beautiful to sing in, it's a fabulous building, and the staff and clergy were all very friendly and welcoming. There's coffee after the Sunday Eucharist, and...More

Lots of steps to climb from nearby shopping centre. Most of cathedral hidden from view. Pleasantly surprised at interior which had some modern elements. Did not have a lot of time to fully explore the place

Small but nonetheless beautiful cathedral with plenty of features to admire and enjoy, set within well maintained and attractive lawns and flower beds bursting with colour. I was drawn to the memorial window to the 6th Battalion West Yorkshire Regiment, depicting various scenes from WWI...More

I went to visit the WW1 stained glass window and then to find work by William Morris, Dante Gabriele Rossetti and Burne Jones was so exciting. I was also able to see the large cross-stitch sampler made by shell shock victims of WW1 which was...More
