We found this mostly Norman church by chance. It is hidden away by the Grosvenor Park and has some fine stained glass.

The cathedral is impressive with magnificent hall and magical decoration. The small gardens are picturesque especially in the spring. There is also a lovely shop for souvenirs inside. Entrance is free but you can give donations if you wish. Would definitely recommend it!
