It was so interesting to get the contrast between the two cathedrals; the interiors were quite similar. This one had the lovely restaurant next door as well as the little museum.

Having attended Charles Wood Gala concert this building shows what a versatile venue it is. Beautiful architecture, surroundings and a fabulous and stunning organ which accompanied the choir and singers. Well worth a visit when in the area.
