Perched on Stag Hill, adjacent to the university campus, the cathedral is an example of modern design utilising equally modern materials. Unlike many cathedrals, stained-glass windows are noticeably absent; almost all the windows are of plain glass, allowing natural light to flood the white interior. Visitors are welcome to explore the cathedral and admire the contemporary architecture. Although there are very few stained-glass windows, the structure makes good use of light, and where stained glass does exist, it often produces impressive coloured light displays on the light walls.
Visitors can obtain advice and information about the building, and be directed to the free ‘self-guide’ leaflets, that enable visitors to tour the cathedral and its ground at their own pace, from any of the volunteer ‘greeters’ on duty in the cathedral. This is a good starting point if you want to know more about the building. The cathedral is open every day, admission is free, and photography is permitted for personal use.
