I only normally attend church while on holiday, and then only when I can expect impressive architecture and music; the Oratory certainly ticked all those boxes. The building itself is very impressive on top of a hill a short walk from Snowdon Metro station. There is a shuttle bus which takes you up to the top and then escalators, lifts etc. For the further climb within the building. The actual basilica is built in a very austere modern style but is impressive. Particularly noteworthy is the organ (see photo) which is said to be one of the top ten in the world, and they had certainly found a worthy organist. We attended on Sunday at 1100 so were there for Mass. This was mostly run by a young women who put the three elderly priests in the shade as far as charisma is concerned and also had an amazing singing voice
