I adore looking at and visiting Cathedrals and this was just beautiful. I hate how some Cathedrals have a entry fee and a gift shop! But this one doesn't. Its lovely to walk around and such beautiful architecture! The lovely man on the door was very informative and friendly. I am not a religious person but love to see how... More

Manchester Cathedral is not huge, and if you're used to other European cathedrals such as Notre Dame... well, don't expect that. But it's still a beautiful place in the city centre, easy to get to, very peaceful. It has few art pieces. It's definitely something you need to see if you're in Manchester

Lovely cathedral to visit. No charge. But asks for donation around church. New organ fitted in late 2016. Seen signs for concerts that take place there. Think that would be nice. Loads of interesting pieces around church with facts.

After a busy afternoon shopping, the opportunity to explore this amazing space, listening to choir practice too was fabulous! The refurb isn't quite finished but with such a distinguished and elderly building, there will always something needing care and attention! The project was also to establish a more sustainable heat source, also valued yesterday!

We were warmly welcomed when we entered the Cathedral and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The choir stalls and the misericords are absolutely excellent and well worth looking at closely. However, a new organ has been recently installed and one wonders about the insensitivity of placing it above the chancel screen and therefore depriving everybody of a view along the... More

Lovely old building . Lots of work going on so not all open. They are in the process of installing a new organ looks very impressive. The interior is a little dark probably due to the dark stone that was used. Unusual in that it's very wide almost square.

Impressive building with some fairly modern stain glass windows which are unusual. Brand new organ is a spectacular centrepiece. Don't miss the specialist tea shop opposite for great snacks or lunches, including the best soup I have ever tasted.

Stumbled across the cathedral when leaving the shopping centre. It looks lovely from the outside, the architecture inside is amazing! The stained glass windows are gorgeous!
