Visited last year with my young Granddaughter who loves Cathedrals! The volunteers there are all very friendly and helpful. They also do visits to the tower on certain days. Lovely calm and peaceful place to visit.

We found it, very inviting, and everyone could sit where ever they wanted, they even supplied tea/coffee and biscuits. The pillars where not a problem.
