For a cathedral quite small, but very well build. Lovely details on the wood, wooden ceilings, very nice church. We actually caught a children’s choir practicing christmas songs, very cool!

The entry is free, worth stopping by. It's near the national football museum and the huge shopping mall.

Visited the Cathedral during a weekend in Manchester. Looks small from the outside but once you are inside the acoustics are incredible! Such a grand building. Beautifully maintained building and friendly staff.

It wasn't a huge cathedral, but still a beautiful church with a big pipe organ. It was lovely to listen to the organist play some music.

Wherever we go we will always visit a Church or Cathedral. I would expect a bigger Cathedral for this city but unfortunately it is quite a small one. It looks nice on the inside but those modern chairs really do not fit with the inside...More

Nice welcome on entering, only suggested donations unlike York Minster, Canterbury and others insisting on entry fees. I appreciate it's expensive to maintain these buildings but some people can't afford to pay. Not a massive amount to see compared with some but still worth a...More
