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.

What a contrast in architecture from the Anglican Cathedral. If you like modern you'll love this. I find the red stained glass representing the drops of blood from the crucifixion particularly moving. The walk up the steps is such an improvement and I love the fact that the cafe is separately located outside the sanctity of the cathedral rather than... More

An absolute must visit place. Even if you are not of any religious persuasion, the architecture and scale of the church is something to be marvelled at.

The Catholic Cathedral is definitely worth a visit (more so than the Anglican one if you are short of time), both the 1960s Cathedral itself, which is airy and colourful and contains some fine examples of 20th century sculpture and tapestry, and Lutyens' vast brick crypt for the planned Cathedral that never was below it. Even for a non-Catholic it... More

A testament to modern architecture, this building dominates the skyline. The steps leading to the cathedral entrance really give it a sense of awe. My girlfriend did not like it she said it is like entering a football stadium but I completely disagree. Once inside you have a massive single space, but walking around you learn that there are little... More

A very beautiful space and how fortunate we are that the original scheme didn’t make it off the drawing board - at least above ground! The palpable sense of peace achieved by a combination of light colour and modernity is wonderful. You can get a glimpse of what might have been in the Crypt, with its gloomy victorian brick and...
