Sung eucharist takes your appreciation of the liturgy to a new level. For those of us from the antipodes, it is a real experience to have sung psalms and anthems.

Wow what a treasure in the heart of Newcastle. A place for everyone, a young man asleep in a pew, an intoxicated local discussing life loudly with God plus others sitting in quiet contemplation. The history, architecture and central location make it a must see.

The cathedral is a lovely area of calm and peace in the centre of the city. A good café at the back.

Beautiful church. Brought back lots of happy memories of my daughter playing her violin with school friends during a performance in front of princess Ann who was representing a patron of The Save the Children Fund. Beautiful glass windows and naturally it gave a sense of peace and calm. An enjoyable visit.

This is open to visitors on most days of the week. The architecture is quite stunning and once inside the stained glass windows are awesome.

impressive cathedral well documented along your visit. You are inspired by the many (hidden) wooden carvings and the nice layout of the building. Don't miss.

This is a tranquil and peaceful spot in a very busy area of Newcastle near the Black Gate and Castle Keep, the Bigg Market and Central Station. Beautiful stained glass and superb architecture make this well worth a look for anyone interested in buildings and especially churches
