Manchester Cathedral

Whether you wish to come and see the ancient architecture, to attend a service and listen to our choir, to have a coffee, to learn or to attend a special event or exhibition, you are very welcome to come and visit us.

Manchester Cathedral is the medieval ‘mother church’ of the Diocese of Manchester (Church of England). It is open every day, for people to come and pray; to admire the architecture, carvings, paintings and stained glass; or to learn about the often somewhat quirky history of the place. Regular guided tours are offered. The Cathedral is home to a fine choir. And, besides all sorts of religious events, it hosts a variety of concerts, ranging from classical to rock; also drama, art exhibitions, displays relating both to history and current affairs, lectures and other educational and cultural events.

There is plenty to see in and around the Cathedral and to help you get the most from your visit there are volunteer welcomers and guides who are often available during the day to answer any queries you may have and to give personal guided tours of the Cathedral.

If you are making a special journey, it is recommended that you telephone the Cathedral Office in advance to check that there are no special services that might curtail your visit.
