Not one of the great cathedrals but interesting nonetheless. Super welcome from the volunteers who pointed out features of interest. Good guidebook and free leaflet if you don't want to pay for one. Don't miss the lovely monument in the bookshop!

I am sure this is a delightful cathedral church. Unfortunately I could not gain access. I came on two occasions, only to discover that the advertised opening times are meaningless. Early closing on both days. I thought Anglican cathedrals were places where regular services are...More

I attended a memorial service here one Saturday afternoon. Thankfully I reconnoitred this site the night before, as my Tom Tom postcode locator was way out and parking's not the best. Found fairly centrally within the city. The surrounding grounds were clean with basic grassed...More
