About
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.

Loved the glass and the artwork
Nov 2021
The highlight, for me, was the crypt, which was built to the first design by Lutyens in a purple brick. The cathedral itself is a sixties design, built when they realised Lutyens original design would cost millions to build. Worth a visit…go first thing, there are lots of school parties by midmorning.

Such a beautiful place - photos don't do it justice

Do allow yourself time to visit this beautiful cathedral. Simple, modern design - it is stunning. The Crypt closes at 4pm - £5 extra charge.

Visited the Cathdral for the first time and was breath taken by this beautiful building. Very peaceful, cultural and spiritual. We managed to go to lunch time mass which was lovely. Parking was easy as there is a car park under the building which was reasonably priced. A truly wonderful experience.

Catholic cathedral and the crypt
Oct 2021
The cathedral itself is stunning but visit the equally impressive crypt and you will get some idea of how imposing the originally planned building would have been

Stunning
Oct 2021
I cannot believe how beautiful and stunning this Cathedral is. So stunning, with its modern decor but keeping the religious theme at the fore front. A pleasure to visit.

The Lutyen's Chapel is the highlight
Oct 2021
I've visited the cathedral a few times, but i had never bothered to visit the crypt beneath.
For me, this is the highlight and a must-=do if you are visiting. It is incredible imporessive and the story of how it came to be built, abandoned and then re-used as the crypt for the modern cathedral above is quite amazing.
It carriesa fee, but it is well worth it.

An absolute must-see, it's a jaw-dropping building, with equally impressive artwork inside (the stations of the cross are magnificent)
