The Manchester Cathedral is a tremendously beautiful piece of architecture both inside and out. I had the pleasure of being able to visit around sunset, and the sun lit up the clockface and tower in a spectacular manner. An excellent place to contemplate.

This was my first visit to the Cathedral. I was here for the concert performed by the Manchester Camerata. The building has recently undergone major reconstruction which includes introduction of new green underfloor heating. The building was bustling with an audience that was apparently twice the number originally estimated but despite this it seemed rather gloomy. I will need to... More

Manchester Cathedral is lovely, walking through the Cathedral, gazing at the stained glass windows and feeling peaceful. A quiet and reflective space in a busy city.

A lovely serene building in the centre of Manchester, filled with the presence of God. Some lovely stained glass windows, lovely wide spaces. A great exhibition centre, well worth a visit if you are in the City centre. if you have time stay for one of the daily services.

The Manchester Cathedral is a beautiful cathedral. The outside is gorgeous! The inside is also nice, but there's nothing that makes it stand out from any other cathedral, in my opinion. The stained glass windows are pretty and the architecture is neat, but I think what made me really enjoy it (which I don't think would happen often) was the... More

As soon as you walk into the Cathedral you get a real feel for the history of this sacred space. The Choir area is amazing; beautifully carved. The volunteer I spoke to was very helpful and was able to answer my questions about the history of marriages and baptisms at the Cathedral. As an added bonus you can see the... More

There is not a lot to Manchester Cathedral. It is a large, empty space, very badly heated in cold weather. It might be worth a quick walk-around if you are already in the centre of town, but don't count on being inspired.
