Lovely cathedral well worth a visit! Exterior roofs with gorgeous coloured tiles. Stunning in the sunshine. Inside beautiful stained glass windows and gothic arches. Free entry. Great for any day.

Big organ pipes, stained glass and lots of masonry. An impressive cathedral to visit. Open 8:30 to 7pm with disabled access.

Very helpful man at the bookstall/ticket sales. He suggested visiting the adjacent archaeological museum. The free organ concert was excellent.
