l have always loved this church, from a very early age. Hidden away in the heart of Manchester City centre, you wouldn't know it was there. Especially at this time of year, when they put the nativity display out. lt is magical, as well as memorable. Opportunity to reflect, in calm and quiet surroundings. The little Gem (AKA St Mary's...

Mulberry street in Manchester is home to one of the finest fruits in the North...St Mary's RC church. Hidden in the heart of this hectic industrial hub is a place of peace and tranquility far from the madding crowd. An architectural delight in itself take a look inside and the interior will take your breath away. Religious or not Manchester... More

Did not know it existed until I stumbled across it. Very close to the town hall but what a surprise. Church is small but the interior is very beautiful and very calming. Lovely place if you want a few moments to reflect in a calming manner.

I came across this beautiful church while wandering around the city .Very peaceful ,I took time to sit and look at the Stations of the cross which are worth a look .It was nice to see members of the congregation quietly queuing for confession during Holy Week .

If you have a spare few minutes and want to escape the hurly burly of Manchester then this is a wonderful little oasis of calm. It is a beautiful little church with some amazing artwork. you can sit and contemplate and leave feeling rejuvenated spiritually.

I was in Manchester for a wedding and my friends stopped briefly to let me have a view of the place and told a little history too. I could not go in and have proper view. They promised to bring me back here on my next visit. Am looking forward to spending more time in this nice little worship place

This is a beautiful little church and well worth visiting and for going to Mass. Really a little gem that should be on everyone's list of 'must see places' in Manchester.

Had a few moments spare and called into this little church. It seems to be very special to its loyal congregation who appear to have given it rave reviews and is certainly more ornate than your average English church The inside is however INMO, very modest by continental standards but is worth a quick look round if you have 5...

This church is well known to locals. It's appeal is probably that it is tucked away behind office buildings and unless you know about it you would not walk past. It offers a little peace and quiet for some reflection during a busy shopping trip!
