The cathedral can be found a short walk from the railway station. The Roman Catholic cathedral is small but has some interesting modern stained glass and interesting icons. There is also a lovely little coffee shop on site where snacks can be purchased.

This is a cathedral full of light, with a very hich roof and a good open aspect. Not over-decorated, but a place of quiet for prayer and contemplation

A painted interior very much in the Arts and Crafts style complemented by the wonderful Industrial window of modern stained glass.
