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.

The Cathedral Church of St Nicholas is a short walk from Newcastle's Central Railway Station or Monument Metro. It is a quiet place to spend some time looking at the stained glass, the monuments and just to take in the history. Considering it's on the junction of three busy roads when you step inside you can feel the tranquillity of... More

This old cathedral has a good deal to tell the visitor about religious history and in a city with not too many cultural buildings provides an interesting couple of hours distraction. Café seems fine although we didn't use it

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.
