We had tea and cake five pounds for two in this lovely cathedral after wandering round Newcastle castle and keep. It was quaint and friendly nice pit of tea - enough for two cups. Also coffee was large and good. I chose a huge cheese scone instead of choc. Cake. The cathedral is unspoilt clean and friendly staff on hand... More

This is a building I visit regularly as a place of worship, because I am a relation of one who sings occasionally in the professional choir there, a concert venue, an architecturally outstanding building and a place to take an occasional coffee or light meal. I particularly enjoy the peace and beauty of the choral evensongs sung on some weekdays... More

Beautiful building. Make sure you see the Danish window dedicated to the Danish sailors who lost their lives in WW2.

This is a lovely cathedral - has the feel of a small old church - it just happens to have been elevated to the cathedral. Lovely lady welcomed us and made sure we knew the bits to look for.

This church is as impressive on the outside as it is on the inside. Definitely worth to step inside and have a look.

Felt instant peace and sense of calm as I walked through the doors. The attention to detail in all the artefacts and tablets is incredible. Took my time while wandering around guided by the free leaflet which points out main objects of interest but there is so much more to see. Grandeur and simplicity meet up here. Well worth a... More

We love stained glass so couldn't resist popping in and we're so glad we did. Unlike some cathedrals that can feel very commercially orientated, this one is friendly and accessible - no roped-off areas or notices telling you not to do this or that. We were greeted by a chaplain who gave us a written guide and was very welcoming... More

You have to have stumbled across this delightful little cathedral almost by accident, in order to even realise that such a modest (but very attractive) church could be a cathedral. And more kudos still, in the fact that it is very reminiscent skyline-wise, to St Giles Cathedral in Edinburgh.
