I visited the Cathedral on on a Friday mid afternoon. The building is absolutely immaculately maintained. It truly is a stunning building. The cathedral also had the most amazing display on show for remembrance Sunday.

Simple but beautiful cathedral. Well worth a visit. Be sure to contribute to their Lego Cathedral project where they are building a replica of the cathedral in Lego!

The Cathedral has a lovely garden attached called the Abbey Gardens. The Cathedral is one of the best Cathedrals and the shopping centre is spread out in a beautiful area with lots of restaurants with a number of different foods to choose from.

The cathedral is quite inspiring actually. Beautiful inside and out. I found a seating gallery high up on one side that was a pleasure to sit in for a short time, looking down on the main chapel was very stimulating.

It takes about 10/15 minutes to walk. There are two routes - either through the town centre or straight along Fornham Road/Northgate Street (more or less in a straight line from the station to Angel Hill, where the Cathedral... More
