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 beautiful Cathedral and definitely worth a visit whilst in Liverpool. Amazing stained glass windows which on a sunny day look stunning from the inside.

I have been to quite a few events here, if you are visiting our city then it's a definite must see, the main alter being in the centre of the church, with a cafe and shops to eat or browse around

What a wonderful place. Light shining through the stained glass. Truly a modern 'superstructure'. Do not miss this treat - it is very atmospheric and a wonderful religious space for all religions. A Roman Catholic cathedral to be proud of.

We didn't care for the modern Metropolitan Cathedral. Can't really say why. Very impressive in size, but that's about it. It was dark inside and kind of ugly.

This cathedral seemed tiny after visiting the Anglican one but it really isn't. The style is completely different and the design is beautiful with all the glass and the natural light. The real gem is the Lutyens crypt absolutely stunning seemingly completely different church underneath. Again well worth a couple of hours visit.

A real piece of art on modern sacral architecture in Liverpool as the locals say PAddy's Wgwam ......adorable interior with fantastic colours and structure do not miss it especially if you are looking for some peace, calmness and time for a pray

Fabulous modern cathedral. Well worth a visit if you are passing even if you aren't a catholic. High mass on Sunday with the choir boys is something worth catching if you are catholic. Also has vault, small chapel and crypt with tours if you book.

An amazing story attached to this cathedral and one of dedication and love!! Inside the building it is peaceful and very beautiful. Watch how the light follows you around as you gently walk around the cathedral you get a strong feeling that Hod is watching over you!! A wonderful place to visit and reflect. Everyone should go here, it's well... More
