A beautiful building in a nice location tucked away from the busy shopping area in the city centre. The cathedral is also used as a gig venue and having been to two gigs here (Wild Beasts and Sharon Van Etten) it is without a doubt the most stunning venue I have ever been to. Definitely worth a look regardless, but... More

I've been to the Cathedral a couple of times when friends or family have visited manxhester. It's a nice space to get out of the hustle and bustle of nearby shopping districts. Even if you're not religious it's an impressive old building. The volunteers are friendly and know lots about the history of the church. It's interesting to just wander... More

It was a rainy day when I visited. I was impressed by the building first time but as I walked in, there was no more surprise. Just ok to see for few min.

Some CathedralS are big and impressive. Some are small and insignificant, but Manchester Cathedral is a manageable size. It is crammed with history but not that big that it feels overpowering. It has a friendly atmosphere that many Cathedrals lack. I love it.

Although the stained glass windows are relatively modern in date and style they are very interesting - well worth seeing whilst you are in Manchester. There is no admission fee to the Cathedral though, of course, donations towards it's upkeep are appreciated.

I came here to watch a live Bach violin concerto. It was an absolutely wonderful evening, well organised, very warm for a cold wet winter’s night. I would definitely come again for other upcoming events.

I have lived in the Manchester area all my life, and I have visited cathedrals in different parts of the world, but I had never visited Manchester Cathedral, until today, as a birthday treat. I was so impressed with the way we were greeted as soon as we walked through the door. We were offered a guided tour, for which... More
