Visited at the time of the Xmas market. The carol services provide a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the markets and the building itself is an interesting place to walk around. There's a nice gift shop attached too.

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!
