“Nice place.”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Having passed it many times, this time we decided to enter. Lovely cathedral. Our German friends were grateful for the German leaflet! Strange new piece of artwork in one of the side alters. (St George and the dragon interpreted in a modern way.) Quiet place to reflect.

“Lovely Cathedral!”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

A very peaceful cathedral in the centre of Manchester. It frequently stages events. I sang there as part of a gospel choir that joined with lots of others from around Manchester - it was magical! Nice to pop into as a break from shopping.

“Impressive”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Visited the Manchester Cathedral as a time filler while in Manchester, and I do not regret the choice. The cathedral is majestic. The stained glass is impressive. When walking through the aisle you can imagine the atmosphere that a full choir would create. Do not agree though with the commerce taking place in the church, in particular the coffee shop which is within the boundries of the place of worship.

“Gorgeous Cathedral”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Not the biggest Cathedral around but very nice all the same. Beautiful internally, it needs more emphasis externally to attract the passing public. it was hidden away for a long time behind some derelict buildings and it probably needs more open space so it can be seen from the pedestrian shopping areas near by. Worth a visit mind.
