It took us awhile to walk to the cathedral only to be disappointed to learn that it was closed for renovation.

Arrived and initially able to enjoy the beauty and atmosphere. Pleased to respect the request for quiet and appreciated the opportunity to enjoy the ornate decoration. However, I was soon ashamed to be British when a coach load of noisy people seemed unable not to chatter and complain about the admission charge.

Very disappointing there was scaffolding around the whole building and this was then clad in tarpaulin so we did not even get to see the outside of the building and the gates were locked.

This wonderful cathedral is worth a visit but not at the moment where it is covered in scaffolding and tarpaulin. It is largely also not possible to go inside the building. On a hot day it would be a shame to trudge all the way there, only to be disappointed, like we were.

The cathedral is currently closed for restoration (July 2014) and the entire building is covered in scaffolding and protective tarpaulins, so you can not even photograph the outside..
