One of the most beautiful Cathedrals in Blackburn, at the heart of Blackburn. Great place to to go for your prayers and as a traveler a place to just explore and take some nice pictures with the great blue sky and greenery around.

Well this was a surprise, a lovely cathedral that seemed to combine the old and modern, it was bright and airy, possibly my favourite cathedral for the design. The people there were very welcoming and friendly, even the bishop stopped to chat. Excellent.

It is strangely truncated from the outside with a large copper 'button' artwork on one side. Basically, not only did the money run out after WW2, some cheapskate building and glasswork needed remedying when it started to fall down. As a result, the building isn't as originally envisaged. However, it is very pleasing as open inside, light and attractive. Some display information really needs to be brought up to date, it doesn't detract overall. Great newly refurbished cafe alongside which I would definitely recommend. Good selection of food at reasonable prices. Enough seating. We didn't eat, but the food did look delicious.

Sadly a huge let down on food quality.My husband ordered the club sandwich but failed to read the menu properly as it was dried up chicken nougats on top of egg mayo with yet another egg on top.My full English was also a let down as the bacon was way over done.The rest was not as fresh as it could be.On a positive the coffee was lovely and the staff were lovely.The cost was £23.80 for two standard coffee’s,one club sandwich and one full English.Too Much!!!

We went mainly because it was raining, but what a find it is fantastic and we will be going again, plus someone mentioned the cafe which I believe is also a good standard.
