It is one of the biggest cathedrals in the world and the interior is not at all austere as some cathedrals can be.
Slightly annoying was the fact that for those who didn’t want to pay the admission charge they could enter by a side door and although they couldn’t walk around freely and see all of the internal rooms and the especially impressive choir area, they could certainly see and appreciate the magnificent structure for free.
While I am on the subject I don’t like it when people get things for free and I don’t like those Alan Titchmarsh garden makeovers or people getting houses decorated by Nick Knowles. Titchmarsh even did a makeover for Nelson Manela who was a millionaire and could surely afford to pay for it himself. Free school meals irritate me because I am paying for them. On the other hand I am comfortable with free prescriptions because I do get them.
