A nice cathedral, well worth a visit, highly recommended. So good nowadays to visit a cathedral that is not money grabbing by demanding an entrance fee but for donations only.

Beautiful cathedral despite not being the biggest by far, but well worth seeing just for the architecture if not the religious stuff. It is also right beside the castle (as in the New Castle) so go see both places.

Lovely setting for a fairytale wedding service. Steeped in history and utterly charming. Was able to visit the Cathedral before the function began and was so impressed by its artistic gems and history.

The church makes any photo a good one. I caught it in a few of mine. I didn't get to go inside but I might do the next time around. Very central.

It's not very big but this cathedral has a little small curved bridge next to it which can be finished by walking for 10-15 steps!

There is so much to see inside and it is much bigger than expected, a real sanctuary in a busy city.

What struck met at my first visist was a candle dedicated to people of all religions. This made me feel at home from the very start. At our second visit there was a Franciscan brother, sitting silently in a corner, adding to the peaceful, interreligious atmosphere. Then we were welcomed by the very friendly verger, who walked throught the church... More

A lovely building situated right in the heart of the city. While maybe lacking the glamour of say Durham Cathedral or York minister, this is a lovely building with an intimate setting, much more to my personal taste. There is a really peaceful atmosphere in the building allowing you to be alone with your thoughts. Of particular note for visitors,... More

On visiting family in the northeast we went for a walk around Newcastle and found this church and we were shocked with how nice it was inside. We got some great pictures and would love to go again.

I always get pimples when I come back here where I was confirmed. Churches vary This is a truly sacred and holy place. It wraps you up as you enter and bids you welcome. The vergers were so kind to me too, listening patiently to an old chap burbling on about his memories of choirs and scouts and everything of... More
