I took a couple quick snapshots of the stained glass windows during a walk around the pews.

The church interior is accessible via the main entrance and although most people immediately queue outside along the building to access the stairs to the gargoyle roof, definitely take a walk inside the church before you go!

More great pics. I would advise a longer visit though for more of the effect. I love coming in the early morning and having the place mainly to myself and walking around.
