Holy visit to this cathedral. Like any other cathedral, the design of this building was similar to any. Nothing so special but the atmosphere can give you divine and holiness

It really goes without saying that if you are seeking some "time out" in a busy city you will find it in a place of worship. Manchester Cathedral is by no means the biggest or oldest cathedral in the UK but it has a distinct beauty and gravitas which impresses itself upon you. Walk quietly and read the information provided... More

We were greeted by a polite lady on arriving who shared a leaflet apologised for work currently going on. The stained glass windows are very colourful. It is free to enter.

We visited the cathedral just when the Vintage fair was there and it gives it even more glamour. The cathedral is beautiful on its own and all those decorating details could be appreciated for hours. With the Vintage fair inside, it was also very lively and with such a great atmosphere.

Quiet and spacious, this is the ideal place for prayer and meditation. It also offers an overview of the ancient town and its stone walls. Try the café on the corner: excellent tea and desserts.

A quick trip inside this beautiful cathedral today and ended up staying awhile. The ceiling is amazing and if you are passing you should pop in and rest a while.

I was with my two sons having a wander round the city centre,we were walking past the cathedral and decided to pop in; you can enter for free and have a walk round at your own leisure although it doesn't take long to do this as the cathedral isn't that big really. It's worth a few minutes to have a... More
