  • Yesterday - 17th Dec 2016 we visited this minster for Christmas carol concert for everybody. The building itself is stunning, huge, in a very nice small town or village. The concert was what I did hop...  more »

  • Hosted a fascinating exhibition featuring some of Queen Elizabeth II's outfits, including one beautiful dress with a tiny waist worn when she was already a mother of two.
  • Monumental, magical and magnificent cathedral in such small town (slighty over 7.000 population). I had a feeling like I was back in time to medevial era or at least in Tristram from Diablo computer game. Defenietly worth seeing although check the weather first! Sunny day is perfect for sightseeing this beautiful minster 😊
  • 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
