  • Whistle stop tour of churches in the Birmingham area....what a find. Lovely building, lovely friendly people...just a beautiful place. 
  • It's a good place to pray or to shut out if you like going to attend mass at rush hours during busy days

  • Remarkable building by Pugin which looks positively Hanseatic and quite out-of-place in the centre of Birmingham. Unlike the Hanseatic churches, however, the interior of this church is bursting with all the trappings of the catholic faith, including relics - the hat of Cardinal Newman is my personal favourite!
  • A truly beautiful place with very artistic touch to it. We attended daily noon mass for a week in Sep 2015. During the Sunday mass, got a chance to meet the Parish Priest who was a warm person, the choir and the pipe organ was outstanding. We met a nun, Sr Therese, she was a wonderful human being who used to look after the chores of the church, we got to have small chats with her. Also there was a caring parishioner by the name of Rose who would exchange greetings with us quite often. We loved the overall experience and look forward to attending masses at St. Chads.
  • Built by Augustus Welby Pugin and substantially complete by 1841, St Chad's is one of the first four Catholic churches that were constructed after the English Reformation and raised to cathedral status in 1852. Grade 2 listed building is open from 7 am to 5 pm. Architecture has German middle age influence.
  • A beautiful, grand church. Currently has scaffolding on the outside (Sep 2016).
  • It`s a nice building, I went there for Sunday Mass (twice) and also during Ash Wednesday. Priest in charge was very welcoming. Unfortunately, you can`t take photos from inside, and I consider this is wrong, because it`s possible in many RC Cathedrals I visited in the UK ( Arundel, Portsmouth, St. George`s Southwark, Norwich, Nottingham, Sheffield, Leeds, Liverpool, Newcastle), As a tourist I disagree with this "rule" because it doesn`t let us to keep in our eyes such a nice architecture! Hope they will change this soon!
