A very historic church. The cemetery is definitely worth a visit if you like that kind of thing. So interesting to read about people.

A beautiful historic building, right in the city centre near the busy shopping streets. Well worth taking the time to see when in town.

We had just been to 2 cathedrals in England, one being Durham which was amazing and I wasn't sure this would hold up in terms of ability to awe. The modern stained glass windows were really interesting and made this cathedral unique. I'm not and...More

An interesting cathedral in style, although as it's Presbyterian it's a cathedral in name only. Well worth a walk around. On the negative side, it's in bad need of a good clean - the muck on the stonework certainly doesn't glorify anything.
