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.

I attended a morning mass during my stay in Liverpool, very peaceful and serene. Such an amazing cathedral with splendid architechural features. Definitely worth seeing the inside as well as out. Also take a trip down to the Anglican Cathedral on the other end from Paddy's Wigwam!

When you look at Liverpool's Catholic Cathedral you realise that it is something very different and particularly when you compare it with the Anglican Cathedral just down Hope Street, which has the look of a more "regular" church. I took my wife to what used to be called Paddys Wigwam for her first time last month and she really enjoyed... More

Aside from Manchester, Birmingham and London, Liverpool is one of the few English cities with two cathedrals. The metropolitan Cathedral is a sight to behold with a late 1960s design and truly awe-inspiring dimensions and sight lines. Especially beautiful to visit at night and for high holiday masses.

This modern designed cathedral is more beautiful inside than out, especially when the sun shines. It is so peaceful inside.

Everyone raves about this cathedral which is extremely modern inside. Maybe it's because I'm not a Christian but I didn't feel there was any special atmosphere. Although the cathedral apparently holds over 2000 people - which I find quite scary - on the day I visited it was deserted and seemed like a glorified museum. The whole thing is circular... More

Very unusual cathedral, the stained glass windows is incredible when the sun is shining through. Interesting point of the pulpit being in the middle of the floor. Also the Anglican cathedral is at the other end of Hope street.

Did this after the Cathedral and the difference is astonishing - very different but both take your breath away - the gorgeous colours from the windows is stunning.

Felt like I was in a giant warehouse. No atmosphere and not particularly impressive interior apart from the size. Coming from Durham there is absolutely no comparison between the two cathedrals.

The modern design of this cathedral and the fact that it's built in the round, impressed me but the truly amazing space is the Crypt (for which there is a small entrance fee) which is another world entirely. The guides are a fount of knowledge so do use them.
