My first ever visit to Gordon Monastery was 2010 when I attended the Christmas Charity event for the Christie Hospital. A truly awe inspitpring interior hidden away in Gordon, Manchester. Saved by volunteers and devoted fundraisers from demolition and rescued from vandalism and neglect after the religious order had moved out, the Monastery has been transformed into an events and conference centre. It retains its spirituality - a place to marvel and respect the devotion of the faithful in this once desperately poor but proud working class district of Manchester.

Afternoon tea has to be booked and paid for in advance, and whilst it's nothing particularly fancy, it's served by lovely staff who can't do enough for you. There were some nice bite sized tartlets along with the sandwiches, and the cakes were really quite good. Plenty of jam and cream for the scones, too. The monastery itself is quite beautiful, and free to look around.

decides to visit as we had tie to kill and the it was free to enter. What a lovely and interesting place this is. Do ask the guides about the stolen statues - incredible. Café nice and vegan options available but cake dry and a real let down

Step back in history, with all modern facilities. Wonderful building , tea rooms and other attractions. It is a must see venue. Description won’t describe it well enough

We went to the wellbeing event at the end of June. There where a varied selection of people promoting there businesses. People offering healing etc. The lady playing the harp and singing was out of this world. The energy was transformed. When you go look at the monks statues that are around the ceiling of the main hall. See which one you are drawn too. It will have a message for you. The cafe was good too.

The monastery is such a lovely building. The way that it has been restored is stunning. It has a modern feel but they have kept its character and charm. The tea room is lovely and the staff are also friendly.

What a transformation and a credit to all the people who have made it happen. Well worth a visit for a couple of hours and glad to see it is being used for community purposes as well. Staff very friendly. One word of warning check the main hall is not being used when you visit.

A big disappointment when visited, the place was hired for a private party and the main hall was closed for visitors. Tried to get permission to visit but our request was rejected. The staff are friendly and helpful .
