This was a lovely cathedral on the smaller side compared to many large cities, but it was quite lovely with interesting history. The soldiers chapel had pictures of what it looked like after a ww2 bombing, and there's an old bridge under the cathedral visitor center. Also a free entrance which was nice.

Visited Manchester Cathedral today which is an interesting building and has some lovely stained windows. The fire window was the most interesting and worth the visit.

This is a good place to learn about Manchester as the Cathedral has despite the World war 2 damage, plenty of clues to it's long history. Even now there is repair work being carried out in the nave.

My son and I went here last week and spent over an hour walking around. This is a must do while visiting Manchester. It is free to get into and just amazing seeing the architecture and history. I am so glad I went and would go see it again.

I had visited Manchester Cathedral years ago and made a return visit this month. It is very beautiful inside - lovely modern stained glass and, of course, the wonderful new organ.
