Fabulous stained glass windows, good free leaflet of history and highlights. Looks like a very nice cafe too. Kosovo exhibition very interesting - a good way of commemorating 20 years since the end of the war and the refugees' experiences and new lives in Manchester.

This is not one of the great English Cathedrals but combines grandeur and interest all the same. The volunteer staff were very friendly and well informed.

I love Manchester Cathedral. I try to come here once a week (usually a Sunday), and each time I go, I feel refreshed. It really helps me get back to my roots and brings back such fond memories of childhood.

Perhaps unsurprisingly this venerable old building is much restored. The Victorians are no doubt the major culprits but World War 2 bomb damage was also apparently severe. Despite this, there is still much that has a clear medieval feel, particularly the fine nave roof. And...More
