Such a lovely cathedral. Small but gorgeous. It is possible to go up to the top which I definitely plan to do some day.

Dated from the 13th century, this awesome cathedral has a Lantern Tower built in 1448 and a nice clock. Located on Mosley Street, you can drop off in Central Station and it will be a short 5 min walk from there

What's not to love, a funny guide, a little seen part of the church (as it is not open all the time), a little learning about the bell ringing, and views that go on for miles. 162 steps to the top and worth every one.

St. Nicholas Cathedral is definitely worth a visit. Just go inside and take in the wonderful interior.

I was surprised by the detail offered by the self-tour pamphlet provided inside the church. Great walk through a ton of history in this place.

This is surely a highlight on any visit to Newcastle. It is a 'working' cathedral and feels like the hub of the city. Obviously it is a place of peace, meditation, prayer and worship but is also of interest in many ways to the history and art tourist. There is a good cafe and a special mention must be made... More

Beautiful Gothic style Cathedral. The cathedral's construction began roughly around 1080 so it's amazing to see this beauty last for years. Too many artistic details throughout the building to mention. Loved the stained glass! Free admission but donations are welcomed.

How thrilled we were to actually see, first hand, something we'd only been told about through family history. My husband's grandfather was actually a stonemason who worked on the renovations of the church back in the late 1800's. A great-aunt had given me a tin-type of the cathedral maybe 30 years ago and told me the story but I never... More

It is a working Cathedral and they had an exhibition while we were visiting. So you can pray, watch the exhibition from local artists or admire the building.
