If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.

Cathedral Church of St Mary and St Helen

The cathedral was designed by Quinlan Terry. Architecturally the inspiration is early Italian Renaissance crossed with the English Baroque of Christopher Wren. The windows have characteristically English lead cames fixed to bronze saddle bars with small panes. The clerestory is faced in Smeed Dean stock brickwork and the roof is Welsh slate. All 5 orders have been employed in the design; Tuscan for the arcade, Doric for the main giant Order, Ionic for the east and west Serlian windows, Composite and Corinthian for the organ and cathedral. Stations of the Cross were sculpted by Maklouf.
