What a lovely cathedral! Externally and internally beautiful. Well worth a leisurely visit. However, despite the attractions of a cafe and shop being well signposted outside, they were all closed (as were the toilets) at 10.30am on a November Friday morning.

Once again, reading reviews, we visited expecting more or better than we saw. A lovely cathedral, but perhaps having been to Palma Cathedral a few weeks earlier, it paled into significance. It felt very stifled when we visited - maybe just us. Choir was practising...More

The size of this place! We went inside at choir practice and the sound was amazing. A wedding was shortly being held here so our visit was short. Well worth popping in though.

Really enjoyable visit to St David’s Cathedral which was amazing. Beautiful stained glass windows, shrine, icons and images. Local guide was helpful and told us about some of the history. Photos permitted. Refectory was really good with healthy food and great views upstairs.
