A beautiful Cathedral, truly breath taking. Wish we'd paid to have the tour which was £5 per person as we would have learnt more.

We visited after 4pm and the stewarding staff appeared to be leaving for the day. Despite that and the place being readied for a function we had a pleasant stroll round and particularly admired the painted ceiling.
