One of the UK's newest cathedrals, Blackburn is a vibrant and striking building in the heart of the city. See the sun stream through the 56 different panes of coloured glass in the lantern tower, and enjoy the seven seconds of reverberation! The cathedral is home to one of the country's finest organs, built by JW Walker.
Blackburn Cathedral is easily accessible by car from the M65, which bypasses the city. Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool, Preston, Huddersfield, Halifax, Bradford, Bolton, Burnley, Rochdale, Blackpool and Lancaster are all within an hour's drive.
All day parking is available at The Mall (5 mins walk; £5, 1300 spaces), and at Blackburn Station (7 mins walk, £2) and Eanam Wharf (10 mins walk; £2.50).
The Cathedral is directly opposite Blackburn Station, with regular trains from Leeds, Preston, Burnley, Bolton and beyond.
The Cathedral is directly opposite Blackburn Interchange for bus travel.
