This is definitely better than ST Nicholas cathedral because I love indoors and the big steeple is great.

First visit

My first visit to St Mary’s today and I wasn’t disappointed. It’s beautiful inside, the sun beaming through the stained glass windows. The choir singing from the balcony over the entrance. The walls are painted in rich colours and are visually very appealing. Due to the colours used and the great size, there is a whiff of Hogwarts great hall!
Go and take a service if you can. A beautiful experience.
We also used the cloisters coffee shop for tea, coffee and cake. That was all good too.
There is a small car park beside the Cathedral and if a service is on it is usual to get blocked in. Don’t panic!!

A very beautiful church

There is a real sense of welcome when you go into this Roman Catholic Cathedral. It is open all day long, has daily Mass and there is a cafe/restaurant and a bookshop to explore. You can light candles, say prayers, sit quietly or go to a service.

This is a beautiful cathedral next to Newcastle centre for life and train station. Looks great inside and it’s unbelievably tall the steeple.

Just managed to see inside before the clean, although didnt realise that at the time. Quite small as cathedrals go but not as small as St Nicholas' and still intimate.
Much more colourful inside than most cathedrals too.
Closed friday afternoon to wash the floors
Cafe and shop on site

Beautifully painted cathedral

Really beautiful Cathedral opposite Newcastle Train Station. The colours inside are really vibrant in comparison to older Cathedrals and it is a nice place to drop into either as a first or last port of call if visiting Newcastle.
