St Nicholas Cathedral is a beautiful cathedral right at the city centre (only a few minutes from the main railway station or Grey's Monument, located next to The Castle). I guess it's rather small compared to other cathedrals, but nonetheless it's worth it to have a look, even if you're not interested in going inside.

This Little nice Cathedral is said to be one of the smallest cathedrals in Great Britain with roots in the Norman church that was built there in the 9th Century. There is also a nice little café where we had lunch for a reasonable price. They serve salads, soup of the day, sandwiches etc. It's very near The keep.

Big, beautiful, very old, with soul! Very helpful staff, variety of interesting things inside. You can see how time flow influent on this cathedral - it gave her climat. I recommend this Cathedral to every Newcastle visitor, i spend there more then 40 minutes, and it was too less.

I don't often go into town now, but ended up here a few weeks ago with an old friend, mostly out of curiosity and to get out of the bustle of town. Really took me by surprise how ornate and beautiful this place is, so much history behind it as well. Lovely place to visit.

Great architecture, love the tower, you can spot it from almost everywhere in town, inside is beautiful as well, nice little leaflet with information available in many languages, for free (donations are appreciated), we were welcomed in, nice! Also walked the labyrinths, there were workshops about the labyrinths, but we were not able to attend a workshop, too bad!

It is in the central part of the city and seen from all around the place due to its massive structure. It is lovely from inside and very peaceful.

Very friendly and well presented. Interesting history. The building has been used and used again which makes you part of the history of the building.
