Sounds a bit daunting, but well worth the effort for an incomparable display

Wow! You'll see beautiful things here which you won't find anywhere else. A must see

If you love arts and crafts, this is the exhibition for you. Wonderful Omar Ramsden treasures. There's also a cool view of the Cathedral from high in the gallery.

The model of the Cathedral is absolutely fascinating - it kept me absorbed for ages and some of the Treasures are quite wonderful. It is not a big exhibition but everything is beautifully done and the lighting is superb. Well worth a visit, in my view.
