It's a copy of Westminster Cathedral but smaller really smaller. It looks nice and no much people around, nice little street in one side with cafe and some bar looking the Cathedral. I like it

This Cathedral has a very wide nave. Nice vibe inside. Interesting stained glass, especially when the sun is out. Good organ. Stopped for Evensong sung by the Cathedral choir who were above average. The wooden choir stalls are very impressive. Altogether worth a visit.

Not a great cathedral, in fact a bit depressing and dark but look for the Fire Window, destroyed in the war and then again in the IRA bombing of Manchester. It's a beautiful restoration with candle-like panes of glass suggesting peace and forgiveness. If the weather is good there are old-fashioned pubs with outdoor seating areas just outside the cathedral..

The cathedral is rather small as it was built in the 15th century as a parish church when Manchester was a small town. It only became a cathedral in the 19th century after Manchester became a city. Having said that it is quite an attractive church with an interesting history. In fact its amazing it still stands as it was... More

We joined the sung evensong and it was a wonderful experience. But that's not necessary to appreciate the architecture and wealth of detail. Just pop in for a few minutes (just by the Arndale Centre) for tranquility and stimulation.

Despite the great Cathedral we ar used to, this one is a bit small, although is so well maintained and has all sort of information inside, there is no fee intrance but leave a tip of 3£ would help the Cathedral to be maintained. The architecture is stunning, really close to all the other attractions and cafes/shops.

An amazing free tour with a great history lesson, peaceful, and bursting with history right in the heart of the city. Helpful staff and a cool and tranquil place to regain your composure in the city.
