Heavily altered by the Victorians. An impressive building from the outside: but rather dull inside. Some interesting carvings and memorials: but nothing spectacular. The guide claimed the eagle lectern was one of the oldest in the north - not so sure myself! We visited while...More

I like to go to cathedrals (even though I am not religious) and get a sense of the past of the city. This is a small cathedral in the city centre but well worth a look.

This beautiful cathedral is in the heart of Newcastle. The stained glass, both modern and old, is stunning and there is a great feeling of peace in this still in use building. Well worth your time as a visit.

Nice cathedral, lovely stained glass and all were welcome in. Booklets and brochures available to buy. Did have some homeless people asleep on the pews; you make of that what you will.
