It is the largest Catholic Cathedral in England and together with its sister Cathedral on Hope Street, holds an important part in the City of Liverpool. The Grade II listed building, has a circular and modern design and is known to locals as “Catholic Cathedral” or nicknamed “Paddy’s Wigwam” or “The Mersey Funnel” due to its magnificent round structure.

Underneath the Cathedral is the Crypt. A beautiful attraction that was built upon Lutyens crypt and plays host to Liverpool’s Beer Festivals. It is also a great venue for your wedding ceremony.
