Despite its outward appearance, Manchester Cathedral is one of oldest churches in Europe with roots established around 700 CE. Hidden pieces of art give it a whimsical feel. For example, check out the quire stalls, which have hinged seats that you’re welcome to lift gently. Directly underneath are carvings of medieval morality tales. In one, a woman scolds a man for breaking a cooking pot; another depicts men playing table games. Call the church office before visiting to ensure there are not any conflicting events.

A Fantastic cathedral, I especially love the stain glass windows they are modern and unique. Some wonderful historical features and the organ sounds brilliant. All the volunteers are very welcoming and helpful. Free to enter - worth taking the time out to pop in and explore.
