Spectacular building. The stain glass windows are impressive. Best to visit during mass of some sort. It’s free to visit, but please leave a small donation as a gesture.

Wow, after living in Greater Manchester for 50 years and travelled past the cathedral lots of times never actually been inside it We went to a craft fair today in the cathedral and I couldn’t believe how beautiful it was close up and inside. The stained glass windows were absolutely incredible What a wonderful place this is. Would love to go on an official tour so I can see the whole of it .

Very interesting, impressive building. Worth a visit to immerse yourself in the quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre.

In March this year I decided to visit Manchester Cathedral to try out a new telephoto lens that I’d bought in anticipation of an upcoming holiday – historic architecture is a passion of mine. And though Manchester’s is only a minor cathedral I thought the practice would be useful. The visit started out okay; I took some good shots and eventually had worked my way around to the back of the high alter where I’d set up the camera to take some shots of the ceiling bosses. I had been aware of a service taking place in a side chapel, and as requested on a sign outside of the choir I’d not taken my camera anywhere near the congregation there. As I was taking my shots a member of the cathedral staff, (some sort of guide) came over and asked me to stop as the people in the side chapel had moved into the choir – in truth I had barely noticed them, being so few and so quiet. In fact I didn’t realise they were continuing their service. Being asked to stop what I was doing wasn’t an issue; it was the way I was asked and the attitude of the staff that, frankly, shocked me! I was accused of taking photographs of children and that that is illegal. To say that I was gob-smacked is a serious understatement! A second member of staff tried to calm me when I was obviously outraged at the accusation – and though she declined the offer of seeing the photos that I had taken, I decided to leave, thanking them on exit for their christian kindness and understanding! If you want to see one of the great cathedrals of England head to York or Lincoln, maybe a side trip to Canterbury from London; I wouldn’t bother with Manchester’s, it’s as unpleasant as it’s staff!
