    This Cathedral is dedicated to Thomas Beckett, who in 1770 was martyred. The decor is quite sober, and actually you're here relatively fast around hiked. But as enthusiastic volunteers who maintain this church, tell you the story of the history of this Cathedral and the sad end of Thomas Beckett. There are 2 beautiful organs, one in front and one at the back. I honestly have all seen more beautiful cathedrals, yet the trouble, if you're in the area, to be able to jump in.

  • That's probably my first Anglican cathedral visit and I'm totally disappointed. Where is the beauty and mystic gone?
  • Being a novice bell ringer, I attended a raising and lowering course here. The cathedral is magnificent. Wonderful architecture and beautiful windows. It's very peaceful.
  • Peaceful place - mix of modern and traditional. We visited during their annual art exhibition, one of the many community events held there.
  • Nice and quite place with beautiful architecture.
  • Really calm and quiet place
