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.

This is by far the most stunning Church I have ever set foot in. The colors from the sun hitting the stained-glass is truly magnificent. The ambiance and atmosphere is magical and spiritual. This is a MUST see cathedral when you come to this wonderful city.

Lucky enough to sing in the Cathedral recently and the acoustic is unbelievable. Modern religious buildings don't often do it for me but I very much enjoyed spending time here. The combination of bare concrete buttresses supporting the roof and the blue stained glass created was really effective with side chapels and windows in contrasting red and yellow. Try and... More

Absolutely stunning! The stained glass 'crown of thorns' at the top gives a beautiful kaelidescope of changing colour as you walk around the interior. Some stunning artwork throughout. Forget the religious aspect and simply enjoy one of the architectural highlights of Liverpool!

Fabulous that we visited on a very sunny day so the light flooded in through the mighty stain glass windows. Amazing to have two such different but equally stunning cathedrals not only in the same city but in the same road. Well worth a visit. Lots of steps to climb for this one though. I am sure it is accessible... More

I have heard people remark about this great cathedral that it is bland,even ugly as it was built in the style of the 1960's modernist tradition but i totally disagree,on my last trip inside of here you cannot fail to be impressed by the sheer scale of the interior,glorious use of light and colour's and how peaceful it is in...

The atmosphere created inside this wonderful place of worship is to my mind second to none. The depictions of the stations of the cross and the stained glass bowled me over.

Didn't spend much time in the cathedral itself, but the restaurant/coffee shop was wonderful. A really good selection on the menu from a la carte to sandwiches.
