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 - 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.

    What an amazing place - when you step inside it's absolutely beautiful with the circular aspect. There are a number of private prayer areas for contemplation even when visitors are moving about. Read full review

    This is a very a-typical church. The stairs towards the church are already impressive. The main hall, which is a circle formed hall, is quite impressive Read full review
