Visit The Monastery and discover what we do best - stage outstanding events in one of the most remarkable places to visit in Manchester.

Manchester Monastery is open to the public on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday each week between 10am and 4pm.

The Monastery is closed to visitors every Friday and Saturday when we host exclusive weddings, dinners and private events. These events help to provide an income to maintain and conserve our precious heritage site.

The Great Nave is closed on the 1st Sunday of the month for a well-being event. This event is £10 to attend. See the MOMM event for further details. The rest of The Monastery is still open, but access to the Great Nave will be limited for those not attending the event.

Interested in sacred geometry, symbolism, ley lines, and gnostic teachings? This tour is for you.

Built in the 1860’s, the design of the Church of Saint Francis was influenced by the medieval cathedrals of France. The masons who built these inspiring churches included much symbolism in their carvings.  The site of medieval churches in the landscape was important.
