Such a beautiful cathedral situated close to the train station and Newcastle Quayside. Within walking distance of the main shopping area. Of course their beautiful Christmas services are warm and welcoming as are their many services throughout the year. Afterwards enjoy a walk along the Quay & visit the castle keep or pop in to The Baltic for a coffee... More

I visited this as part of Newcastle's 'Late Shows' so I realise what I accessed is not necessarily open as normal daily, but hopefully you become aware of this for the future Late Shows. Aside from looking around the cathedral itself, I was on a 'Tower Tour' and the tour guide was simply fantastic-every opportunity was soaked up for the... More

Big barn-like interior and an iconic spire. Well worth going in - highlights include a large 15th century Flemish brass, the tomb of Admiral Collingwood of Trafalgar fame, and there's a very nice little chapel in the crypt.

A very impressive building that is over 500 years old. There are also what seems to be tombs on the floor of the building.

It's a breathtaking sight to see. I'm a little bit biased as I loved my liverpool cathedrals. But this comes a close third! Lovely inside and out. Really peaceful and great to photograph Would recommend

First time for 20 years I have visited this lovely place. Somebody commented not much to do what did they expect a bouncy castle and jugglers? A classic case of a computer nerd who had lost the ability to reason things out which are not spoon fed to them.

We had to take a look inside the cathedral as it was very close to our hotel. We weren't disappointed. We felt as though we had been transported into another world, far away from the bustle and the noise of the city centre outside. We thought the interior was stunning. The stained glass is beautiful, and we seemed to get... More

We were astounded by the beauty and detailed architecture of this cathedral. The clock in the facade was beautiful and unique! An advantage is that it's tower is visible anywhere you go in the city.

The cathedral is situated right across high bridge on the Newcastle side. It is beautiful inside out. One can hear the bell ring almost anywhere in the city center.
