Completed in 1895 and designated as a cathedral in 1929, the city's most attractive Gothic-style church is nestled incongruously among looming glass towers. It's home to a wide range of cultural events, including regular choir and chamber music recitals, and the occasional Shakespeare reading. Self-guided tours of the 32 stained-glass windows are available: ask at the front desk for the highlights.

If you're short of time, head straight to the basement for a colorful, curlicue-patterned stained-glass window created by William Morris & Company. Also check out the church's dramatic hammerbeam ceiling as well as its newest window, the stunning Tree of Life by Susan A Point, located near the main entrance.
