Well worth a visit. An old cathedral next to the Castle Keep in the old part of Newcastle. I found it very interesting as I like old churches. There is a lot of history inside and walking around the outside of the building you will see three roman stone coffins. Keep a lookout for the Vampire Rabbit over a door way out side, something to get the kids to find.

I have been in this cathedral now a couple of times and every time I go I find it more wondrous than the last. The atmosphere is strangely surreal and there is a very strong feeling of history ...... that is almost tangible.
There is so much to look at and admire for example the architecture of the Cathedral, the interior and beautiful stained glass windows. Their is also the amazing statues and monuments and tombs..... so much history to reflect upon.
A Jewel in Newcastle's Crown..

We visited the cathedral as part of the Ralph Hedley celebration. What surprised me was the beauty of the interior and the amount of local history contained within the cathederal. There are plenty of information leaflets to read, but I would recommend just walking around and absorbing the atmosphere. Don't forget to look at Admiral Lord Collingwood's memorial and the wood carving on the misericords.

This is a beautiful Gothic Anglican Church with a unique bell tower. The interior has lovely columns and some excellent stained glass. Definitely worth a visit.
