Pocket Guide: Manchester Cathedral Church of St. John the Evangelist Hotels

Manchester has been a thriving manufacturing city for centuries, and although the emphasis nowadays has shifted away from heavy industry there is still a lot going on here. There are lots of different accommodation options on offer when you visit this great modern city to enjoy the attractions. These include everything from historic hotels in Manchester city centre to attractive and comfortable guesthouses in Greater Manchester towns such as Bolton and Salford. There are many historic structures, too, apart from the familiar industrial heritage of canals and mills. The Cathedral Church of St. John the Evangelist, to give it its proper title, is better known as Salford Cathedral, and is definitely worth a visit while you're based in a local Manchester hotel.

Manchester Hotels for The Cathedral Church of St. John the Evangelist

This imposing cathedral in the middle of Salford, in Greater Manchester, opened its doors to the Roman Catholic faithful in 1848, its foundation stone having been laid four years previously. It was the first Roman Catholic Church in England since the Reformation to have been built in the shape of a cross. This was an encouraging sign that old enmities had been finally buried and that reconciliation was the new order of the day. Matthew Ellison, the architect, was a devotee of the architectural style employed by European cathedral builders of the classic Gothic period of the 13th and 14th centuries. You can see this influence at work when you visit the building from your Manchester hotel, as your eyes follow the sweeping pillars and arches to the groined roof high above. It's a real masterpiece of the Gothic revival.

Visit Salford Cathedral with Manchester Hotels

Manchester is rich in such historic buildings, and while you're booked in to a hotel in Manchester you can gain a better perspective on them by visiting some of the city's many museums and art galleries. Salford Cathedral may not be very old by the standards of its counterparts in Canterbury or Durham, but it's just as impressive. Enjoy refreshments in the café, pick up a gift in the shop, and Salford town is itself full of attractions.
