At the start of the main city centre precinct with statue of famous Admiral Adam Duncan in the foreground. Active community cathedral with impressuve stain glass windows. For those who appreciate churches the history behind them and the place in modern society.

The Cathedral welcomes visitors and it is always worth having a look-see. Lovely stained glass windows and nice to have looked in after the many times of just walking past.

Very attractive and interesting. A lovely peaceful place for a visit to get away from the busy town centre. We were made welcome and invited to have a look around

This is a grand church. My interest is in the churches War Memorials, and there are a few there. There was what appeared to be an art exhibition when we visited. The right hand side chapel has a WW2 Memorial screen and several brass plaques.

Important in the city's history, it's a fairly big church jammed on a small site right downtown. Unfortunately it was closed with no info on opening hours.
