“Serene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

We stayed quite close so decided to have a look around. This is a really exceptionally well preserved piece of architecture. The stained windows and general surroundings are really well preserved.
The warders are really informative and helpful in directing you around.
This church/cathedral is well worth a visit and such an interesting venue.

“Understated Cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Rather eclipsed by The Arndale shopping centre just along the road, this is a great and friendly church for visitors. The history is well presented.

“Oasis of calm and interest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Excellent guide made the story of the cathedral and its history interesting and informative. You need good eyes to make out some of the details near the ceiling becaus of the size of the building.

“Nice, but not overly impressive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

I went here for the midnight mass on Christmas Eve. I enjoyed it thoroughly. However, as cathedrals go, I was a bit underwhelmed by the actual building.

“Splended retreat and lovely architecture”

If you're into your quiet places, this is certainly a highlight during a city stop. I would recommend for the historical aspect aswell
