We are not religious but felt it was worth visiting. We were not disappointed. The original Lutyens crypt is very impressive and is the modern building above it. Excellent access for disabled.

Worth a visit especially on a sunny day as the colours on the stained glass windows are stunning. Different as it is made from steel and concrete

Take the yellow tour bus and get of at this stop. Its an amazing cathedral and its hard to believe its 51 yrs old as it has a very modern look. Speak to one of the guides there it was very interesting.

The Roman Catholic cathedral is an absolute must if, like me, you are at all interested in architecture. It's absolutely stunning, both inside and out. Allow 1 to 2 hours to see everything.

This also has a fascinating history. The cathedral itself is beautiful and the light through the roof is something special. The crypt must be seen as well as it makes sense of the whole story.

Nice place to pray and visit if you are interested in architecture as well. I would say to not spend much time here 30 min it is enough

It's incredible how Liverpool has two such contrasting cathedrals as these - both connected by a street named Hope - how perfect! The most amazing thing is that this one was built in only 5 years, as opposed to the anglican which took over 70...More
