There are Cathedrals and then there are Cathedrals and this is one amazing one.

It's very imposing from the outside and inside it's stunning.


The stain glass windows are simply stunning. You could spend ages just looking at each of them. Some of the best I've seen.

The Cathedral has a very warm feel with beautiful architecture.

Lots of things to look at once inside.

Definitely worth a visit.

After visiting the graveyard of
Tyne Cot the remembrance service and concert exceeded all
Expectations .
The talent displayed was extreme in particular the Native
Canadian dancer, not a beat wrong.
War is a waste,!!!

The cargedral is huge and very high, most impressive but quite simple inside, stunning how well it has been rebuilt after rthe destruction of war. Its not busy and is so well worth a visit.

A most wonderful Cathedral. The stained glass windows are beautiful. There is also part where there is an excellent exhibition of writings and memorabilia giving an insight of what it must have been like in those terrible times.
