“Not my favourite!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

Although the interior was impressive I found the Cathedral very dark and gloomy despite the decoration. The lack of windows I found oppressive. A nice looking building from the outside!

“Refection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Well situated within walking distance for most people. A charming building for everyone to relax and reflect for a while away from the noise and chaos of everyday life. Nothing to dislike here.

“Christmas Eve Mass - brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

It was nearly packed by 2315hrs, and more people just kept on coming in. People were stood or sat in the isle and stood at the back for the service. They had the most amazing choir, it was worth every minute.
