Most people know that there are standards for City status. One of the standards is having a Cathedral. Well Newcastle has 2 of them, and damn fine specimens they are too. Sunderland doesn't have one, strange that, since it's supposedly a city.More

The lantern tower is said to date back to the fifteenth century. There is a lot to see and we enjoyed choral evensong sitting in the quire with the choir.

Inside is amazing. Free attraction, we visited after the castle as we had some spare time and very pleased we did. The stained glass is amazing

A very gothic building with friendly welcoming staff and volunteers. Smaller than I was expecting for such a large city.

City centre location with some beautiful stained glass and finely carved stone tracery. Currently it has a display commemorating local soldiers actions in WW1.

St Nicholas' Cathedral is everyone one might expect from a mediaeval cathedral. The architecture is wonderful, and the the amazing brass tomb cover in the back is magnificent. Do try to find the bit of remaining mediaeval glass, too. I can highly recommend visiting on...More
