What an amazing Cathedral with such a history. We were so fortunate to be able to hear a portion of Handel's Messiah being performed while we were there. I was able to make a few rubbings to bring home. Quite an experience!

I'm not sure about guided tours but I do think there is an audio tour. We walked it on our own. There's a lot of cool history to read but we only had about 1.5 hours.

I can’t speak to that, but I can say it’s fairly small, so unless it’s very reasonably priced, it may not be worth a guided tour.
