Whilst in Manchester over the weekend we visited the Cathedral and were impressed by the architecture and history contained within the building. There are many beautiful stained glass windows and areas inside to look at and whilst we were there the organist was practising giving us an idea of how the music fills the cathedral when a service is taking...

Dear Dear Dear Dear. Visited this cathedral yesterday and it's been a while since I have been in there and it was horrifying. There was a Stage set up in there like a concert and some modern art rubbish in there too. This is a place of worship not a club. I know the cathedral needs money to run but... More

This Cathedral is a must if you are visiting Manchester. Inside and out it is beautifully maintained and, obviously, loved by all who look after it. The services are very enjoyable with thought provoking sermons and an exceptional choir. Take time to look up at the stunning ceilings and architecture. Recently acquired underfloor heating so a lot more comfortable too.... More

Cathedrals are always worth a visit but this one seems lost in the regeneration that's built up around it. There's not a lot to see inside either. An interesting building in which to worship but wouldn't put it on a visitor's must-see list.

As you'd imagine, this is a place of great beauty and tranquility. Outside there are small gardens and intricate iron gates at the entrances. Once inside the Cathedral you'll be struck by the pervading sense of peace and calm. Spend some time looking round the various chapels and the choir stalls. As you might expect, there are beautiful stained glass... More

This is one of the Majestic buildings in the UK. There you see the design of this beautiful old cathedral together with the new buildings around it. When you look it, try to close your eye and imagine for a second how was this place when the Cathedral was there alone, this beauty showing off. I didn't had a lot... More

A stunning cathedral - lovely, intricate stained glass windows. Nice and quiet for half an hour or so before going back to the hustle and bustle of Manchester. Will go back to have another longer look, as sadly we didn't have much time in between visting other places.
