We are not a religious couple but we really enjoyed visiting this cathedral church. The garden and the work being done was really enjoyable, and will get even better as it nears completion.

Despite several visits to Peel we'd never visited the cathedral before as it's set back from the main part of town. On site parking and it's worth walking through the maze and garden that is being created in front - when finished this will be...More

Hi Julie Thanks for the feedback. Sorry it wasn't as peaceful as it normally is. I think we may have possibly been rearranging pews and putting tables up to enable a large group who were coming to visit the Flower Festival have afternoon tea, or...More

We came upon this place by accident whilst walking round Peel. There was a lot of information available about the history of the place which we found very interesting and we enjoyed looking round the site.

Spent a morning here on our first visit to Peel. The ladies made us feel very welcome and even switched on the lighting so we could get clearer photographs within the building. Lovely cup of tea and a cake so you can sit and rest...More

Our group was given the warmest welcome by The Dean and others. He showed us round the very modest sized cathedral and then took us on an inspirational guide of the gardens that are in progress outside. His enthusiasm was infectious, and his foresight to...More

A very welcoming place to visit - developing gardens are just one thing to see. Reaching out to all - visitors and locals.

The original St German cathedral is a ruin inside Peel castle, and this is the current cathedral. Quite modern by cathedral standards, being only a century and a quarter old, so no crumbling stonework and strange add-ons over the years.

I may be biased here because this church is where I got married and where I attended my father-in-law's funeral. The most surprising thing about it is that Peel should have a cathedral, given how small Peel is but Peel is a city; only St....More

This ruin, since at least the C18, was the original IoM Cathedral. Then for 300 years there was only a pro cathedral. These ruins were partly restored by the Victorians. Archibald Knox designed a communion set, now in the Manx Museum.
