Hotels near Manchester Cathedral

Manchester Cathedral 

Manchester has gone through many changes, and many dramatic historical periods, since the precursor of the current Manchester Cathedral was built in the 13th century. Throughout all those difficult times, Manchester Cathedral has consistently drawn visitors to its extravagant and exciting architecture – and it continues to do so today. 

Fans of history and heritage should ensure they get a chance to see the religious centre during a stay in Manchester. One of the best ways of doing this is by choosing a hotel near Manchester Cathedral – such as Thistle Manchester City Centre hotel, The Portland. From our well-appointed accommodation you will only be a ten minute walk from the exceptional historical site. 

It's a great place to visit at any time of the year, and offers a fantastic insight into the history of the city, but there are some events that it is worth making the effort to attend. Here are a few: 

 

Dig the City, 3-11 August 

The area in and around Manchester Cathedral is set to become a bountiful garden packed with floral displays when this event kicks off. 

 

Service of Remembrance, 11 November 

Manchester Cathedral received heavy damage during the Second World War which is why it is such a poignant setting for this important day of remembrance.
