On entering the Cathedral you will see a jaw dropping gorgeous Waterford Crystal Chandelier hanging from the ceiling, it is amazing. I could sit just looking at it all day. It is stunning.

I'm not sure if this is a museum or a place of worship. When entering you're exposed to souvenirs and other paraphanalia. I had a nice discussion with the curator but the interior did nothing for me.

One of my favourite locations for almost 20 years. The site has 1000+ years of history encased in a wonderful Georgian building. Light inside the building is fantastic & the acoustics are brilliant. If you can get there for a concert, do.
