You must see if you can get the attention of a guide! We were having a great visit until we caught the attention of one, it then became a highlight of our trip! Awe encompassing! Majestic!

An interesting cathedral in style, although as it's Presbyterian it's a cathedral in name only. Well worth a walk around. On the negative side, it's in bad need of a good clean - the muck on the stonework certainly doesn't glorify anything.

The cathedral has been put to changing usage from its original building through the Reformation, but its architecture remains substantially intact. There is the unabashedly gothic repetition of the columns and arches as well as the stained glass windows that bathe the interior in mystical...More
