A 15-minute walk from its Anglican counterpart along Hope Street, 1960s' "futurism" best describes the exterior of what's locally know as "Paddy's Wigwam." The huge interiors illuminated by natural light through the exquisite stained glass is worth the journey itself.

The brutal concrete exterior of the Metropolitan Cathedral doesn't prepare you for the beauty inside. The modern take on a cathedral is a refreshing and rare sight. Gothic arches are replaced by a single circular hall surrounded by stunning windows in every colour of the spectrum. Come here on a sunny day to see it in its full splendour. It... More

As a 74 year old male whose ideas on cathedrals and churches are maybe old fashioned, I found the outside of the building too modern

Right in the centre of the city, along hope street, easy to find as you can see it from anywhere in Liverpool. Nicely built. Inside was spectacular. The interesting part of it was the crypt below the building, what could have been the 2nd biggest cathedral in the world. History is fully explained well. Enjoyed my visit and would recommend...

Despite having lived in the area for years this was the first time I had been inside the Catholic Cathedral. I had seen it so many times on visits to Liverpool but had never made time to visit. The spark this time was that the Truce Statue was on display in the Unity Chapel and I wanted to see it... More

You approach Paddys wigwam, everything is concrete,the steps,the entrance hall, not nice, but then walk through the doors and you are in one of the most interesting, serene spaces ever. Then you go down into the crypt, even more interesting. Well worth a visit.
