Manchester Cathedral is just a sight to behold inside and out. Well worth a visit and it is only a short distance from the Arndale centre and costs nothing to see, but you can of course leave a donation. Volunteers are amazingly helpful and friendly, and you can take as many pictures as you want and you will want to.... More

Another great free attraction in Manchester. Impressive architecture and history, go in and have a look around if you are visiting and want a break from the shopping.

Having visited Leicester, Yorkminster and Durham cathedrals in the past week, Manchester Cathedral was impressive enough but really paled in comparison to Yorkminster and Durham. As we were there late in the afternoon, we were fortunate to hear the organist and choir practicing for the Evensong service. Worth stopping by if you are in downtown Manchester, if only to escape...

Welcoming people at the door to show you around. The outside looks Victorian but it is MUCH older - fascinating memorials, sculptures, windows and more.

Very impressive cathedral in a nice part of Manchester. Really relaxing, quiet and peaceful and a good place to visit after the hustle and bustle of the city. Recommend about 30 mins to look round or sit and be still. Close to Manchester Victoria train station~ very central.

Wonderful place to see the many areas of the catherdral and the many figures who have contributed to the majesty of its upkeep. The most amazing place to me was the hall where there are continued tributes and services held for the local aristocracy and legions of troops still sacrificing their lives for their country.

After our visit earlier in the week to Winchester and not going in because there was a £7.50 charge we were very pleased to see there was no admission charge here in Manchester! Not a very big cathedral but then lovely things come in small packages. It was nice to spend a quiet time away from the rumble of city... More

Beautiful venue for Django Django. Bit weird them selling Red Stripe. Didn't mind that the band blew the electrics twice. Stunning architecture and stained glass. Definitely worth a visit.
