Giving this an average rating because 75% of the Cathdral is currently undergoing restoration works and renovation, so the scaffolding and hoardings block off access to large parts of the sanctuary. Otherwise still worth a visit if in Manchester, and its very near to Chetham library and the National Football Museum as well.

The church is not at its most magnificient as there is a lot of scaffolding inside but it is quite humbling to see how far back in history it goes. The concert was quite lovely with... More

Tucked away at the bottom end of Deansgate the Cathedral is probably not on every Manchester visitors list but it is definitely worth a visit. It was undergoing some improvement works when we visited (a new organ) but visitors are warmly welcomed and there is enough to see to keep you out of the rain for an hour or so.

The building is amazing due to architectural point of view. Stained glass windows, sculptures inside are perfect. Location of the cathedral is just in center of Manchester

Cathedral is located right in the centre of Manchester. There was some restoration work going on in the interior during our visit.. Would be good to see when work is complete.. Nice Cathedral for quick visit...

There is restoration work going on inside the cathedral but there is still enough of interest to see and the stained glass windows are beautiful. It is not the most spectacular building I have visited but it is lovely nevertheless and there is a feeling of peace and tranquillity within it, in contrast to the hurly-burly of the city around...

The cathedral is perhaps dwarfed by the increasing number of tall buildings in the area however the entire surrounding parts of the city have been regentrified. The cathedral is surrounded by green space where you can sit and has convenient opening hours. It is possible to self guide yourself around the building. which is a little dark and gloomy on...

If you compare Manchester cathedral to the cathredrals of the World, even to the St. Paul, York, Canterbury etc., Manchester is not going to be top of the pile. But that doesn't mean that it won't make a nice stop. If you have been shopping away the cathedral is almost next door and give you a nice cultural injection. The... More

Our conference dinner was held in the cathedral. Seemed like a strange idea but it all worked out just fine. A smart use of a fine building.
