About

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 the Cathedral's majestic interior which includes modern works of art and stunning design features, such as its striking Lantern Tower - the world’s largest area of coloured glass. Along with daily Masses and Services, the Cathedral runs a diverse programme of wonderful music concerts, exhibitions and special events. Visit http://liverpoolmetrocathedral.org.uk/ to plan your visit.

Of special note is the magnificent Lutyens Crypt and Treasury, situated within the Cathedral. An architectural gem in its own right, the Crypt is one of the most significant works in this country of the leading British architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. Part of Lutyens' early 20th century Cathedral design, the Crypt offers a fascinating glimpse of what might have been, had it been completed. Don’t miss a chance to explore this remarkable space.​​​​​

    This is Liverpool's Catholic cathedral, the largest in Britain and very different from the usual Gothic stone of its medieval counterparts. Yet this 1960s creation has its own kind of quiet beauty... Read full review
