This is a hidden gem, as the interior comes as a total surprise. It is unlike any other cathedral I have ever seen and well worth a look. I look forward to attending a concert there to hear the special acoustics and experience the atmosphere.

I had the privilege of performing with my choir at this lovely little cathedral. It doesn't seem that impressive on the outside, but the inside is breathtaking. They also have a nice little gift shop right in front, and all the proceeds go to the...More

It makes such a change to have a cathedral in Georgian style that has not been "updated" by the Victorians. An elegant space with lots of light and elegant decoration.

A very bright and beautiful cathedral on the inside. The pipe organ took center stage as you entered the building. There were stained glass windows throughout as well as statues and memorials. There was also quite a bit of information explaining the history of the...More
