MANCHESTER CATHEDRAL:

Manchester Cathedral is an important gothic cathedral from 1421-1882, situated near the River Irwell, that flows through the city. This sandstone and limestone building is the city's parish church. The interior is dark, and not especially large for a cathedral. St Ann's Church at St Ann Square is a smaller church. Here you find a couple of nice historical buildings.

JOHN RYLANDS LIBRARY:

John Ryland Library is a historical library, housed in a dark and beautiful Victorian neo-gothic stone building. It is situated on Deansgate, a major street in the heart of Manchester, and is open to public. The building, designed by Basil Champneys, was completed in 1899, and the library opened in 1900. It was founded by Enriqueta Augustina Rylands in memory of her husband, John Rylands. The interior is very dark with many wooden panels. It is said to have inspired the Hogwarts school in Harry Potter. You can find a copy of the Gutenberg bible, the first edition of Ulysees by James Joyce and Papyrus P52, the earliest extant of the New Testament text. In the basement you find historical toilets, and the building feature several stained glass windows, as well as a modern annex that is incorporated into the old building. Realistic portraits, creatures and mythical symbols are carved in the building's Yorkshire and Cumbrian stone material. The Rylands Gallery features 1.4 million items. The Crawford and Spencer rooms consist of rare books and items, bought from these families by Enriqueta Rylands.
