Overview

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.

Impressive building but we couldn't go inside as a service was happening. Just the wrong day to stop by.

I do like old, classic cathedrals. Salisbury is great, and St Paul's is lovely, but they are kind of all the same. But the modern, inventive ones seem to get overlooked, and that's very true here. This is a beautiful building. It's diverting and unusual...More

A serene space, awe inspiring great for quite contemplation and I'm not religious. Make sure you go down to the crypt; a small fee is charged but it's definitely worth it.
