Visited here as a cultural / historical change from the normal shopping and sight seeing trips. The cathedral is absolutely stunning. The organist was playing whilst we were there which added to the element of somewhere so holy, but so accessible. There was so much...More

Welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Visitors are welcome. Free entry, but consider a donation. There's lots of interesting history within.

I wasn't sure what to expect. I'd thought of a dour Scottish kirk, but it was a lot more lively. It had all the characteristics of a Church of England but with its own focus on the "great and the good" of past Newcastle. Didn't...More

I walked by this cathedral on the way to the Quayside and the Tyne Bridge, from city center. It is a lovely piece of architecture, even from the outside. Just stand and look at it, thinking of entering it when it was first built!More

Nice cathedral in Newcastle city centre. Quite plain on the inside, though the stain glass windows are pretty. Worth a flying visit if passing by.

Pretty from the outside. Inside it was not much. Dusty old church that I am sure is historic, but lackluster curation did nothing to pique interest.More

From outside the cathedral seems quite compact, slotted among other buildings but in fact there is a lot more to it than first meets the eye

Open from 8am this is a spendid cathedral to wonder, meditate and pray. Lots of local history about the north of England and quite a few famous burials. Traditional and very large. Has its own cafe.
