If you don't worship a Deity, then you will worship the architecture of this place! The Stained Glass Windows are a marvel, and the pipe organ will be a eye catching sight when the restoration is finished and it's been re-installed.

The recent flooring put in has made the Cathedral a much brighter place, i frequently go to here on the Tree of Lights service and have to say have noticed a positive difference to the interior

Many English cathedrals are promoted parish churches, often with monastic history.

We live in Manchester, but it's always good to learn about what's on your doorstep! The volunteer guides are very knowledgable and there are some lovely cafes around to stop off in for a wandering afternoon. Well worth a visit!
