A most remarkable structure; apparently Winston Churchill, as a young man, helped in the construction! His initials are about 20 foot above the main entrance on the wall to your left as you face the building! A wonderful organ that I look forward to playing...More

There is no cost for admission and you can donate if you wish. It is heated and is open I think from around 0830 to 1800 at night so most of the day(may need to check times for closing).

There is no admission rate. There are tours of the bell tower...really worthwhile. You can just wander in and around the cathedral any day....I am not sure of the exact hours, sorry.
