  • I was invited to light a candle in St Mary's during my visit to the Christmas Markets last night. I was directed to this hidden gem by a lovely gentleman with a lantern, who explained the history of the church before leaving me in peace to light a candle and say a prayer for a loved one. The interior is absolutely beautiful with a lovely calm atmosphere, we'll worth looking for on a trip to Manchester. I wish I could have stayed longer......
  • Check the history of this church. Over the top interior.
  • I'm in SA and my mother Judy Berridge is a parishioner. When I lay in hospital in ICU the priest said prayers for me for which I am truly grateful. God bless you all and thank you once again. Philip Berridge.

Where to stay in Manchester

Some of Manchester's finest hotels are located near the city center. Staying there will keep you close to all of the city's main attractions, as well as its main road and rail networks. Manchester's centrally located hotels boast modern rooms, good food, and friendly staff.ย From thereย you can easily explore Manchester's famous pubs, rooftop bars, and restaurants. For a more leisurely and quiet experience of the city, venture farther away from the central areas. There you can explore a world of relatively inexpensive boutique hotels and self-catering apartments, especially convenient for visitors using Manchester as a base for exploring northern England and North Wales.ย
