Part of the Church of England, this lovely, small and inviting place of worship is part of Manchester's city center, which has undergone major redevelopment in recent years.

Not one of the world's great cathedrals, it's more of a big church. But the stained glass windows, the chapels, and magnificent architecture make this worth a brief visit on any trip through the Manchester City Centre. There's a lot of construction work underway inside...More

Great in so many ways , see the fire window , as a reminder of the fire in the 2nd world war , see the private chapels , and the widest nave in England . All in all just fab.

By many standards this is a small cathedral and it is not the most beautiful or highly decorated. Nevertheless it is an oasis of peace and is a lovely piece of architecture on a smaller scale.

Not the biggest cathedral you are ever going to visit and there was building work going on when we visited which didn't let us see the place in it's best light.

Glorious building. So much architecture to appreciate. It's so quiet and tranquil, I could have just sat for hours in there. Lovely building.

A truly amazing and magnificent building. A 600-year old Cathedral that has suffered damage during World War II and has been restored to its former glory. The recently installed organ in 2016 is beautiful. A site not to be missed in Manchester.
