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.

"Paddy's Wigwam", as it is affectionately known, is a stunning piece of architecture, much improved in recent years by the rebuilding and landscaping of the surrounding grounds. The visitor centre, to the right of the grand, stepped approach is excellent. There is a smart shop and a self-service restaurant, serving mouthwatering, home-made cakes, savouries and salads and a good range... More

The exterior of the building was intriguing. The steps at the front of the building made for a grand entrance. The interior was overwhelmingly stunning. We were lucky to have visited on a sunny day, the sun shone through the amazing stain-glassed windows. It was mind-blowing to sit and contemplate in this stunning setting.

From the outside it isn't very impressive but once you step inside it has great beauty. The sun was shining so the colours in the glass were vibrant. Worth a visit to see a cathedral with a difference

Although it looks modern and unusual from the outside, do not be tempted to judge this cathedral's appearance from just that. Yes, it is very modern, but it is truely beautiful inside. A wealth of colour and calm. Do stop and take a look. The main cathedral is free, with a charge for the underground crypt.

Wow, what a contrast between the two cathedrals. Such an interesting place to visit and the stained glass is breathtaking.

One of the most amazing, inspiring and spiritually uplifting buildings you can visit - regardless of faith.The design of this building is incrdible using modern materials of the 60's and seventies the blendof concrete and stained galss shouldn't work, instead it provides the skeleton of a structure that once inside strikes at your very soul with it's sheer beauty and...

Having visited the beautiful Anglican cathedral this was a soulless place. I did not feel any spirituality, it seemed very brash. Big disappointment

I so recommend a visit to this cathedral at one end of Hope Street, modern in its entirety whilst maintaining the total sense of peace and religious sincerity. Difficult to explain so visit for yourselves!

We have two beautiful cathedrals which are both worth a visit. But the light that comes through the centre of metropolitan cathedral is fantastic. And the sound if you can go to a service there is magical with the alter in the middle

Very easy to find on the drive in from the motorway, well signposted. Parking beneath the cathedral in the original structure was easy and also strangely peculiar. Easy access up into the building and what a sight to see with the coloured light coming in through the high windows and central crown. Beautiful inside and out and the supplement payable... More
