No trip to Liverpool is complete without a visit to the awe-inspiring Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King. This dramatic icon of faith, architecture and human endeavour is spectacular in both scale and design.  

Explore - free of charge - its majestic interior which features modern works of art and stunning design features - including the world’s largest stained glass window. Perhaps you can time your visit to take part in a mass, or witness one of their many music concerts and special events . 

Of special note is the magnificent Lutyens Crypt and Treasury. Part of Sir Edwin Lutyens early-20th century Cathedral design, it is a place of stunning architectural inspiration and spiritual resonance.  The crypt, with its breathtaking scale and beautiful vaulted halls had been hidden from public view for many years. Don’t miss a chance to explore this remarkable space, whilst learning about its rich and varied history in our permanent exhibition.

    It is well worth a visit. The inside has a pleasant air of openness. Try to go on a sunny day so the modern stained glass effect windows can spread their colours around. Admission is by donation. Read full review
