If you're into your quiet places, this is certainly a highlight during a city stop. I would recommend for the historical aspect aswell

“More than it looks from the outside”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We were surprised at how big the cathedral was inside, probably because it is very open with not many pews etc. Plenty of people inside to help with questions and free tours at certain times. Readily given a good brochure to explain areas within the cathedral.

“Welcome to a Place of Worship”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

I visited Manchester Cathedral in January when there was snow in the ground. Well worth a visit. Warm welcome by the steward on duty. Tours are available but I simply walked around on my own and then visits again to the Sunday service which was an uplifting experience. The congregation was very open and welcoming to visitors. Do go if you a in Manchester on a Sunday morning at 10.30 ( or to any of the advertised worship events).

“Love it”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

This little gem is one of Gods houses where the spirit of the Christian faith feels alive and very real. The greeters on the door were delightful and helpful and the new info leaflet a lovely reminder of our visit.
