Completed in 1895 and designated as a cathedral in 1929, the city's most attractive Gothic-style church is nestled incongruously alongside 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. The roof was being replaced and a new stained-glass-accented bell tower was being added on our visit.

Peruse the kaleidoscopic array of stained-glass windows inside the cathedral as well. If you're short on time, head straight to the basement for a colorful, curlicue-patterned stained-glass window created by William Morris & Co. Save time to check out the church's dramatic hammerbeam ceiling, a rare construction that survived latter attempts to modernize it.
