  • A church of superlatives. Despite of the age young compared to many other British churches, the Church somehow exudes history. The light falls beautifully through the window. Worth a visit in any case.

  • A great place which is very impressive. Not just a tourist place but a spiritual place. There's a really useful guide for those who want to avail themselves of that. Sit in the body of the church and take in the grandeur of the place. Coffee and meals available. No charge to get in but a donation.
  • A beautiful building with such welcoming staff. 2 lifts plus 108 steps up to the tower but it was worth it for the view. If you have time explore the gardens and of coyrse, don't forget the shop which has some lovely gifts.
  • A really lovely place to visit. Staff very welcoming and knowledgeable Free entry!! But donations are much needed to maintain this great building. Very beautiful, lovely atmosphere, wonderful windows. Enjoyed it very much.
  • Absolutely a lovely cathedral. Very awe inspiring and beautiful. The twilight rooftop experience is absolutely beautiful. Bell ringing evening was a do not miss event, loved it. Unlike a lot of other cathedrals , this one does have elevators to assist you up to the top, though some stairs do need to be done.
  • What a wonderful cathedral so impressed with the interior and the fact we had the pleasure of choir singing. We also had a very good lunch there too.Would thoroughly recommend a visit.
