The queue was quite long, so this was a fast way to get past that - you just enter to the side of the queue and go straight in. If you want to go on the rooftop you need to buy that ticket as well, before you go in

The website was so easy, just a couple of clicks & I’d purchased my tickets. Upon arrival at the cathedral I happily stroller past over 100 people queuing & waltz straight through the front door! Super simple!

Knowing the weather was going to be temperamental we booked via this app and walked past the hour queue wait. Highly recommend a visit to the cathedral it’s beautiful.

Entry was fast and seamless and the cathedral is amazing. Both from the outside and definitely from the inside. Truly awe inspiring.

Truly exceptional cathedral, no difficulty using this to beat the line
