Blackburn Cathedral is one of England's newest cathedrals, yet it is one of the country's oldest places of Christian worship. For many centuries, this has been the Parish Church of Blackburn dedicated to St. Mary the Virgin. It continues as a place of prayer and worship and is now at the centre of the Diocese which takes in almost the whole of Lancashire.

We went to a Christmas do in the Cathedral and were amazed, at this stunning location. The lighting was ethereal the layout of the tables fantastic, then going down into the crypt, for drinks and dancing, just amazing.

first ever visit to Blackburn cathedral and I really enjoyed. Very modern as opposed to other cathedrals but it as a sleek welcoming feel. I really loved the ceiling and the statues. Nice place to spend a little solitude time.
