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.

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
