Past, present, and a very bright future!

Founded as a Benedictine Abbey in 1092, our cathedral has a rich history and a diverse and exciting future.

Dedicated to Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary, our mission is to celebrate God’s presence. We aim to embrace the community whilst ensuring the survival of this cathedral for future generations. The church was gradually rebuilt from 1250 and onwards in Gothic style. This feat took 275 years and resulting in today’s truly incredible structure.

Our Refectory Café is the perfect pit stop for coffee or lunch and finally, our Gift Shop is a must, to remind you of your visit.

We are the largest venue in the city for performances, events and exhibitions which we host throughout the year!
