Sacred neighbours

This joint trail of Manchester Cathedral (Anglican) and Manchester Buddhist Centre (Triratna Buddhist Order) is a fantastic opportunity for pupils to visit two contrasting places of worship and consider what is meant by a place of peace or sacred place.

We now offer two options:

Sacred Neighbours is our standard joint tour of these two buildings, exploring their history, architecture and activities and the beliefs underlying these.

The Place of Peace considers the buildings as places of peace, as well as the place of peace in our lives. We can also explore Christian and Buddhist perspectives on issues of war, peace and justice.

The cathedral features a regimental chapel, war-time bomb damage and some of the finest medieval carving in England; the Buddhist Centre is a beautifully converted Victorian cotton warehouse and home to many Buddhist 'Right Livelihood' projects.
