Lots of interesting history! A nice touch, when you go through the main door there is an information card to help you understand what you are looking at. A good location. Has it's own car park.

St Asaph Cathedral is amazing so beautiful and well maintained, so we'll worth a visit also has a coffee shop. In the grounds is the translator's memorial was erected n the North side in 1892 commemorating the tercentenary of Bishop William Morgan's Bible of 1588.
