“Only available via the tour.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2012

This was one of the last stops of our day and we weren't able to view the church unless it was via the tour. We were exhausted and not interested in the tour so we passed on it. Too bad they do not just charge an admission fee and let people see inside, if it is about money, I'd have paid the entry fee but didn't have the desire to take a tour no matter how long it was.

“What a ceiling”

The cathedral is very nice but the renovated ceilings (for the roal wedding) is something you should see for your self.
