The stained glass windows are beautiful especially on a sunny day. It's nice to sit and just gaze at them. Find a guide and visit the crypt. It's enormous and the guides are full of information. They even have beer festivals.

You cannot visit the Anglican cathedral without also visiting the Metropolitan or vice versa. The Met looks a though it was build 700 years after the Anglican but, in fact, was completed earlier in the 20th century. An impressive and beautiful space but it didn't move as the Anglican does.

This Cathedral, which can be seen from almost everywhere in Liverpool, has to be seen to be believed. Stunning light enters the Building via the "Wigwam" central spire. Lots of blue glass around the building with just the odd piece of red for affect. A must see if in Liverpool

We went here after we had visited the Liverpool cathedral earlier and weren't sure what to ecpect Even as you enter it is a truly complicate building with it's imposing centre piece and the blue lighting used all around. The cutch is a complete circle in side and you can walk all the way around without any problems. The altar... More

The interior of the cathedral is something you have to see. The space is great as is the stained glass. The informative notes at the entrance are also very well laid out.

We walked down to this cathedral early Saturday morning around 8am. It looked absolutely beautiful in the morning sun. We went inside and the stain glass windows all throughout the cathedral brought this amazing light effect into the building. Any design lover or lover of architecture must visit the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King.

This place is amazing. Do go down to the crypt and if possible go with a tour guide. Although not very old this building has an amazing history. Well worth a visit.

Brutalist and modern, the wigwam (as we locals call it) is breathtaking... While on Hope St do visit both epic cathedrals in this great city, but you'll love the stained glass in this one...

Welcomed in. Wandered around in a peaceful cathedral, fabulous architecture and really loved the crown of thorns lighting canopy. Be warned lots of steps in from the front
