Owner description: 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.

An amazing building - the stained glass windows are incredible. It's great comparing the two great cathedrals in the city!

Impressive-and-a-half, even for a non-believer. My only regret was that the crypt was closed when I visited, so ring ahead if this is something you want to see.

My favourite place to visit in Liverpool. Always peaceful and the coloured light is just wonderful. They Lutyens Crypt and treasury are well worth seeing. The cafe on the piazza outside does yummy cakes. Out of the two cathederals this is my favourite. The Anglican one is nice but nothing special. This one is something special.

If anything was going to inspire me to belief this would be it! Typically in Liverpool it has the nickname of Paddys Wigwam and when you see it you will understand why. Replacing the original overblown, and oversized plans which can still be seen in the footprint surrounding the later version and in the Crypts, it is worth a visit... More

The building is interesting and the crown thing is quite good. Inside you can walk around and see crypts and different kinds of art and icons

Visited with Spanish friends, and stumbled on to somebody's wedding day there. This is a magical building that looks different from every angle. I defy anyone not to be impressed.

... and interesting. Loved the idea of mini-chambers with unique feels all parts of the main hall. The glass panels also cast a special impression. I may be going to hell for this, but one of the large Christ paintings does look like Paul McCartney.

We visit often, at least 4 time a year, we have an ulterior motive as we have a memorial to our late daughter there. Visiting Liverpool also gives me the opportunity to spend some money in the Liverpool Fc shop in the city centre.
