St. John the Baptist Cathedral, Norwich (must see)

The Cathedral Church of St John the Baptist is the Roman Catholic cathedral of the city of Norwich.

The Cathedral, located on Earlham Road, was constructed between 1882 and 1910 to designs by George Gilbert Scott, Jr. as a parish church dedicated to John the Baptist, on the site of the Norwich City Gaol. The funds for its construction were provided by Henry Fitzalan-Howard, 15th Duke of Norfolk. In 1976 it was consecrated as the cathedral church for the newly erected Diocese of East Anglia and the seat of the Bishop of East Anglia. It is the second largest Roman Catholic cathedral in England. In 2005, St John's Open Days proved to be very popular, resulting in many first time visitors coming to view the Cathedral. Celebrity chef Delia Smith is one of the regular worshipers at the cathedral.
