Opposite the university this large Catholic church is stunning on the inside. So calming with the most impressive alter and sculptures. Really impressive and the caretaker was so helpful in advising the history and use of the chapels.

Lovely quiet church with outstanding architecture. Lit some candles for lost loved ones. Shame the main tower had scaffolding around it though

Beautiful building, open for visitors to explore. My son lit a candle and wished that there would be no more homelessness (it really is rife in the city and so terrible to witness). No vicars in tutus.

This is a beautiful church with an amazing interior. They have different types of services for different people and the priests there preach in a friendly and inspiring way. Definitely recommend.
