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.

This is one of the oddest religious structures ever. It is like blade runner designed a church. Ultra modern interior is difficult to describe other that it is a 360 interior. The church is built on an old crypt which you require tickets to enter.

Although built fifty years ago you would think you were standing in an up to date building. 'In the round' with the alter at the centre of the building has the advantage that all of the congregation can see and take part in the service. The best time to visit is on a sunny day when the sun comes through... More

I get to visit to lovely Catheral not very often but when I do I feel so up-lifted. It is so spiritual and the history and struggle to get it built is so inspiring. On a sunny day the stained glass from inside is so majestic, it is well worth a visit, whatever your religious belief.

Inspired by a leaflet in my hotel, I wanted to see the Lutyens Crypt. Once I had worked out exactly which cathedral I needed to head for (not the one you expect) I marched up the hill and into the visitor centre. Crypt closed due to examinations. Motto - don't rely on opening hours in publicity material.

Not only is this the most fabulous cathedral ever built in stunning design its so peaceful and meditative and the colour inside through the shades of glass is breathtaking. Mass here is very much worth attending on weekdays at Lunch time (12.15pm) or evening at 5.15pm. Some days the choir is in full song in the evening. Climb the hill... More

My wife and I were really taken by this building - it is magnificent inside - the colours from the stain glass in the tower / dome illuminate the inside - sit down and be at peace - not to be missed!

Interesting modern architecture. Free admission. Photography allowed. Beautiful inside and out but not a lot to see in terms of time required.

Like the Anglican Cathedral this Catholic Cathedral is magnificent albeit as a piece of modern architecture. Inside the building is a wonderful array of colours through the stained glass windows. you don't realise how big the Cathedral is until you step inside. Well worth a visit.
