  • Had a walk round in a wet afternoon It is lovely inside worth a look helpful people and a lovely town generally if you are here this is a must just for the stain glass window if nothing else 
  • This beautiful minster never fails to impress me with the atmosphere that is both grand and calm, despite plenty going on. It is not uncommon to hear choir practice and the organ playing during an afternoon visit. It's large and worth exploring, with a recently opened garden area and the chapter house.
  • This place is amazing such a beautiful thing . Bit surprised because it's such a huge cathedral in a small town
  • I was surprised to see such an enormous and beautiful building in such a small town. I went mainly to see the west stained glass window, designed by Patrick Reyntiens, which is magnificent although rather pale in colour compared to some stained glass windows. Some of the guides were more helpful than others and the facilities did not open until 11.00 am. There is evidence of various styles of architecture and lots of historical features. Visited May 2012
  • Because I am going there on Thursday next week
  • Very good but a bit disappointing that the toilet don't open until 11:00am
