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.

A hidden and incredible sight to see. We were absolutely in awe of this cathedral. Non traditional, we almost walked past it. Very friendly and informative staff. The crypt was amazing - at just £3 to visit. Highly recommended visit

Metropolitan Cathedral is a unique modern cathedral. The design is like no other with a crown atop the building. The stations of the cross are very different, and all the decor is very modern. The pews are all around the alter.

Very interesting to learn the history of this unusual building; unfortunately we didn't have time to visit the crypt, but that will be rectified on our next day out in Liverpool. We were lucky enough to visit when a school choir was rehearsing and that really made the visit as the acoustics are amazing.

This Cathedral is a stunning example of modern architecture. The light that filters through the stained glass windows is magical and even if you do not believe in God , there is certainly a wonderful calm atmosphere that can be enjoyed by all.

I came to Liverpool shortly before the cathedral construction started and many years later, can't help marvelling at the site of it. I'm not religious at all but ventured inside for a look on a few occasion. Just as good on the inside and we'll worth a visit if you are in town. I can understand why true scourers are... More
