The Cathedral has a strong musical tradition, with a full choir of men and boys, as well as a girls’ choir. It also has its own orchestra-in-residence, the St Woolos players.
The Cathedral sits at the top of Stow Hill and welcomes visitors throughout the week who wish to take time out to pray or simply admire the architecture of the building.
