The glass gives this cathedral a great reflection inside well worth a visit.but it seems a pity they dont use it more for sevices when we visited there had been a wedding but it was in the Crypt not this wonderful building.

As a student at Liverpool University in the mid to late 80's, I walked past the Catholic cathedral every day but never ventured inside. I'm certainly glad that on our recent visit, that this was put right. There is a cafe/shop at the bottom of the main cathedral steps. The cafe sells drinks, snacks and hot food at reasonable prices.... More

It is an immense structure with beautiful heavy stained glass. The locals call it St. Patty's Wigwam, but it truly is an impressive cathedral. Had the chance to hear the choir boys practice after school one early evening, as well as the organ. Lovely, and free.

How could anyone dream up the design for this, it is so beautiful, all the coloured glass making it almost like a kaleidoscope. Such a calm and peaceful place, just wonderful.

Well worth a visit. What a find, so much to learn about the architecture and history of the building coming into being. Fabulous modern stain glass windows cast amazing light and patterns so try and visit on a sunny / light day. Also worth a trip into the crypts to learn more about the buildings architectural history.

Incredibly modern inside and deceptively large inside. Definately worth the 50-60 steps to get in to see it (I think there was also wheelchair access to so please don't be put off!) Worth seeing.

Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral (the Catholic one) is every bit as awe inspiring as the Anglican one. I love them both and encourage visitors to see both. Originally a huge Cathedral was planned for this site, and the Crypt had already been built. However as post war building costs soared, a competition was held to see who could come up with... More
