Not the biggest cathedral but worth a visit. Beautiful from the outside, calm and tranquil inside, with some modern stain glass windows as well as. The guide we spoke too was so helpful & friendly also suggesting other places for us to visit.

A really impressive building dating from the 1200s. I was even approached by a member of staff who explained some of the building's history to me. Definitely worth a visit.

Yes it is a small cathedral if you compare it with York, Salisbury, Lincoln etc, but it is certainly worth a visit, if only for the beautiful modern stained glass. Entry is free with requests for donations unlike some of the big cathedrals that charge for entry. The staff were friendly and very helpful (this seems very typical of Manchester... More

It has been several times that I am visiting this magnificent Cathedral, and it is always under some kind of renovation, and reconstruction. I guess it is for better, and it is just fine. This Cathedral is really fantastic with beautiful vitrages, painted glass windows that are just taking your breath away. It seems to me as well that I... More

The Cathedral is beautiful but it is quite small. If you've travelled around Europe and visited other cathedrals, you are not gonna be very impressed.

My partner and I attended the Belinda Carlisle Concert on may 16th 2014 inside the majestic Manchester Cathedral.Oh the sunset setting sun through those stained glass windows captivated us.As a place of worship it retains sanctity and peace and as a space for a performance by an international singer of the calibre of Belinda Carlisle it is ideal.We enjoyed her...

Not very impressive but is amazing that they are trying to do something to mantain that building and do not leave that be abandoned. The ladies there are very friendly.

For a city the size of Manchester, this cathedral is understated. It is interesting but unspectacular.

This cathedral is an imposing sight in the heart of Manchester. Its beautiful stained glass windows are newer than most but only due to damage from WWII and a bit from an IRA bomb. History reveals that the church goes back to 1215. Be sure to notice the misericords which are hinged seat arrangements in the stalls. On the back... More
