Lovely cathedral in the centre of Manchester. The interior is impressive, if not the most spectacular (it's very brown!) but there are some lovely details if you look around. The central area of the cathedral is used for occasional concerts, and the sound is good but sight lines are poor due to the large pillars, unless you're fortunate enough to... More

This is a lovely old Cathedral with an accomplished choir. It has magnificent architecture and is well worth a visit.

I've heard some magnificent gigs there but one of my best memories was wandering around as the sun was setting through one of the stained glass windows whilst the choir was singing. Beautiful sound (as you would expect). Nice pubs and shops nearby as well

I think an event was due to take place inside, as there were extra table and chairs being set up, and access to anywhere in the cathedral was poor. Stained-glass windows were pretty but I walked round the space I could get to within 2 minutes. Lots of boards and drills present too :(

Very limited access inside Manchester Cathedral due to scaffolding and wooden screening, we were unable to see anything other than stained glass windows at the back of the Cathedral. Travelled from South Yorkshire to especially to visit. Why no mention of the work and disruption it would cause on the website? Disappointed and won't be returning.

Beautiful building simply to walk round and take in - however; if you get the opportunity to see a performance there (they have started hosting gigs) find one you think you'll like and go for the experience. Easy to get to, easy to find and the gigs I have been to there have felt very intimate, very special.
