“Not A Lot to See”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

There is not a lot to Manchester Cathedral. It is a large, empty space, very badly heated in cold weather. It might be worth a quick walk-around if you are already in the centre of town, but don't count on being inspired.

“Gorgeous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

I thought it was absolutely beautiful but unfortunately when we were in Manchester in November, the cathedral was closed due to reconstruction. Just from the look from outside I can tell it's worth seeing! The park surrounding it is a very pleasant part of the city.

“A nice visit with friendly knowlegable volunteers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

We had a nice visit here, its great to have 'free' attractions - we did make a donation but for the discerning traveler, it is a nice spot to look around at the architecture and take in the history of the building.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

A gem in Manchester's crown and well worth a peek inside if you are shopping. Please give a small donation to keep this beautiful building in good shape!

“Wonderful Christmas day service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

What a fantastic Cathedral. Went to the Christmas day Nativity service with carols. Go every year with friends. The Dean and all the clergy and choir were fantastic. Thank you for another lovely experience.
