The cathedral is a little out of the centre but it is worth the walk. The Regimental Chapel is particularly interesting. There is a charming coffee shop nearby.

The Cathedral is a very interesting place. The grounds are very pleasant to sit in. The cafe has a good selection of food. The shop has a wide selection of goods. The staff are very helpful.

Such an interesting cathedral. On the plaques there is mention of the person's employment. There is a laminated information sheet in each area which was very informative. The stone screen is magnificent. The Harvard Chapel is very moving. A very special place to visit.

Enjoyed the history of the place. Lots of interesting activities for young and old to see. A Dr Who must-see (no spoilers). Nice quiet spot for picnic on the lawn or int he nearby tea-room.

A very peaceful and spiritual hour or so in the cathedral with stunning views outside of the Brecon Beacons. An ancient building but only a cathedral since 1923 when the diocese of Swansea and Brecon was carved out of the diocese of St Davids.
