A lovely cathedral dating largely from The 1800s, but with some notable more ancient parts (which I wasn't expecting) and some great twentieth century stained glass windows, which were put in to replace those damaged after WW2. Helpful pamphlets and information boards, but no shop or cafe like you get in many cathedrals these days. Worth a visit if you... More

You don't always find churches open these days mid-week. The front door was closed, but kindly directed you to the side door. Much appreciated that they are open! Fabulous old cathedral and well worth a visit. The organist was practicing as I happened to look around; added dramatically...ended with the Hallelujah! Much history to see. Would love to come to...

I love visiting cathedrals in cities I visit and I hate to say that this one was not a stand-out. They did have some very helpful people working there, but the building itself was a little of the boring side. I feel awful saying that about a church, but it's how I felt.

Modern day money changers in the temple? Manchester cathedral embraces the need to broaden its appeal and hosts events that fill the coffers and provide an unrivalled ambience and environment. I attended a dinner at this unusual destination and was mightily impressed by the unique staging and excellent catering provided by Pickled Walnut. Regarding the latter, whilst the food was... More

When you enter the Cathedral, make sure you grab a leaflet which briefly outlines a few points of interest to look out for. It is not a huge building so you only need about 30 minutes to look around. "The Angel Stone" is evidence that there was a place of worship here as far back as 700AD. The choir has... More

One of the smaller cathedrals I've visited but very nice for a short (free) visit. The stained glass windows are beautiful & there's a good amount of information on display. Some good modern art on display, some a little weird.....

Met a very nice man at the door as we were coming in, and he explained the history of the building. Lovely architecture and stained glass windows. Nice place to ramble around and enjoy the peace.

this is just one of those places that you ought to have seen. I'm not much of a church fan but the architecture is interesting. Watty
