A must for those interested in Victorian Gothic as A. W. Pugin designed the cathedral. When it opened in 1841 it was the first post-Reformation Catholic cathedral in Britain. It has been magnificently restored in recent years which has brought to life the richly decorated...More

This cathedral is beautiful inside and well worth seeing. They don't seem to expect visitors - no information or guide leaflets - which is a shame. You have a beautiful church - share it!
