Manchester Cathedral has been centre stage in its city’s history for nearly 600 years. In 1421 Henry V signed a royal charter granting permission for a collegiate church to be built. In 1847 a new Manchester diocese was created and this historic church became a Cathedral. The doors are open 7 days a week and the admission is free. Do not miss one of the most interesting churches in the land at the heart of one of the most exciting cities on Earth.

Visited the Cathedral yesterday ( 14th Dec) It provided welcome shelter from the icy conditions outside and the crowds from the Christmas market.I was particularly taken by the Christmas tree and also by the fine organ which stood out at the centre of the building.

This is a typically English cathederal but what makes it different is the quiet in the middle the shopping district of Manchester. We came in for a wander during a break shopping. Lot's to see and real sense of peace in this church.

Nice cathedral, not massive but worth a visit. The old organ is a fantastic piece of workmanship but don't know if it works. Can't add much to what has already been said. Have a look yourself.

Amazingly beautiful building on, where else, Cathedral Street. Be sure to get on a tour to learn about the history and especially the windows of the cathedral. We were fortunate to get placed on a tour with Pam. She was incredible in her knowledge and...More

As part of my festive celebrations, I attended Midnight Mass at the Manchester Cathedral and it was the highlight of my Christmas. Very well-organized service which filled my Christmas with music, cheer and spirit.

After coming away from the German market stalls it was actually quite nice to come into this impressive cathedral and see different goods for sale. It was a shame that we couldn't really have a nice walk round though but the building is fabulous.
