Near the centre, this old cathedral is surprisingly large for a small city. Its history goes way back of course and there is sufficient to look and read to occupy time. Some lovely stained glass windows for photo opportunities also.
The staff on hand were all pleasant (I assume they were volunteers).

Started being built in the 11th century- a superb building with stunning interior. A large cafe which re-opened today. Friendly staff. Only spent 20 minutes walking round Cathedral but a must do. Donations always welcomed at Cathedral as it states it costs £5,500 per day in upkeep.

We loved our visit to the Cathedral. Friendly staff and a lovely peaceful atmosphere. We strolled around enjoying the beautiful building and memorials.
The altar cloth and one of the tapestries were especially beautiful.
The Refectory cafe serves good food and the shop was first class - full of all sorts of interesting items to tempt the wallet.
