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.

One of my favourite places in Manchester when I want a bit of quiet. My great grandfather was a master woodcarver, and his handiwork is up there in the roof and panels. If you're tired of the bustle of the Triangle or the Arndale just take a seat and soak in the peace.

Stunning place really peaceful. If you are lucky it is sometimes used for musicians from Cheetams school of music to practise during the day.

As an art lover, I enjoyed the view of the Manchester Cathedral. I did not go inside because time was limited, but it looked beautiful from the outside so if you're an art lover and you happen to be in Manchester,

It was quite a surprise to find a majestic cathedral in the middle of a city, being well-preserved and maintained. We took a GBP5 tour which includes the cathedral grounds and the Chetham library, Very well worth it as the guides were quite knowledgeable. There was also a wonderful statue of Virgin Mary and Jesus at the back of the... More

How nice to find a peaceful Cathedral in amongst a very busy city. The stained glass windows are worth looking at and also the the Chapel of the Duke of Lancasters Regiment. Worth taking time out to visit and pay respects, say a prayer, light a candle.

have been before but couldn't see too much that time as they were preparing for a service, This time we were able to walk around all the Cathedral and was very interesting to hear about what had happened to it during the wars and the stained glass windows are beautiful to look at when the sun is shining through them....

Lovely building in a garden setting but near all the shops! Very inspiring inside with wonderful architecture. If you are shopping in the town it is well worth half an hour's stop.

The thing that draws your attention immediately are the stained glass windows - they are simply beautiful! However, You will find other pieces of modern art inside. Visit it even if not for prayer!

Have visited quite a few cathedrals and am still finding it hard to beat Gloucester, but this is small but perfectly formed cathedral. We were warmly welcomed in given a guide and information about an art display. Nice respite to the busy city centre.
