There was a lovely garden with impressive flowers and charming walkways when we visited. Otherwise, I'm sure the benches and the fountains with a view of the cathedral are lovely, but with the garden added, it's beautiful!

Impressive backdrop for this temporary garden which has popped-up in front of the building. The building is lovely although closed when we visited - hence why I only mention the garden.
