Stunning cathedral. I wish I could have gone in to see the glass but all doors seemed closed on Tuesday afternoon. Beautiful grounds.

I have enjoyed seeing this beautiful building located in the Lovely city of Lancaster and enjoyed taking pictures of it. I think its a lovely building from outside and have never been inside the Cathedral.

This is a small catholic cathedral but quite beautiful inside. A very grand ceiling and a number of very nice stained glass windows. The crowning glory is the alter and baptism chapel both stunning.

Despite the fact I'm not religious the cathedral is nice for a quick visit when touring the city, and well located for pubs/food.
