  • Nice cathedral but my God it is cold even on a warm day and it often rains in the cathedral as the rood leaks so much. The cathedral orchestra are good but the Cantata choir need some work.
  • The circular space makes this a lovely place to relax and feel at peace with everything. Awesome structure. Lights and shadows chase each other around the building, neither prevailing over the other. Overall great place to be.
  • Wonderful modern cathedral with beautiful colourful glass making the space even more special. As the guide about the statue of a monk with the broom.
  • A lovely place to visit. Go down to the crypt for a look and you'll find out some interesting history behind the building.
  • I attended an inviting Easter morning service with a nice choir singing in Latin. The building itself is beautiful and unique
