  • The two cathedrals which are...

    The two cathedrals which are very prominent.
    The catholic cathedral is affectionately known as 'Paddy's wigwam' because of it's unique shape. The other cathedral is equally majestic in contrasting redbrick.

    The Anglican and Metropolitan...

    by Jaybers Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Anglican and Metropolitan (catholic) cathedrals are both worth a look
    They are totally contrasting - the traditional splendour of the Anglican and the modern bizareness of the Catholic (affectionately known as Paddy's wigwam).

  • Having had some friends visit...

    by Sheena_99 Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Having had some friends visit me in Liverpool, they made me realise there is more than just pubs here!!!
    For those interested in Architecture...the business part of the City Centre has an abundancy of beautiful buildings, if you are interested in Culture, The Museaum and St Georges Hall are a must....for music, of course the Beatles museaum at the Albert Docks (not to be missed!) and of course Matthew Street, home of The Cavern Club ...where the Beatles use to play.
    Away from the City Centre, if you like football...well, of course the best team in the world is at Anfield....LIVERPOOL!! :-)
    Aintree race course for the Gamblers, especially when it is Grand National day! And no trip to Liverpool would be complete without the obligatory 'Ferry cross the Mersey' trip!
    Travel a few miles out of the City centre to Penny Lane, home of John Lennon (and me!!!) ....and a few miles up from there, the place that the rich Liverpudlians live (there are some!) Woolton, which still has the feel of a olde worlde type village....with of course homes that will make you envious!!! (In the Million pound price range!)
    But my favorite place ....in the summer, is Sefton Park...an oasis in the City!!!! A bit like Central Park in New York!!!
    Liverpool is a very up and coming city, attracting lots of new business and new people....it is moving forward into the 21st Century with a vengence....but what makes it unique to most Citys in the UK, are its people! The most friendliest....and funniest you will ever meet in the UK.
    The divesity of this city....being interesting to all ages and types, makes it very appealing, no matter what you are looking for! But if you ever do visit the UK ...make sure you add Liverpool into your curriculum....you won't be sorry!!!

    Metropolitan Cathedral

    by darkjedi Written Apr 28, 2008

    There are many small crusifixion scenes placed on the walls between each of the sub-alters and if you look closely you will find they are all very gory indeed.

  • Cathedral in an historical style

    by 50939 Updated Nov 30, 2004

    The Liverpool Cathedral (Anglican) was build in the style of Neo-Gothic.

    It looks much older than the Metropolitan Cathedral. But it was finished later (in the 1978; begin was 1904).

    RC Cathedral Interior

    by sandysmith Updated May 29, 2003

    The inside of the Catholic Cathedral is visually just as interesting as its exterior with the colourful stained glass windows and wall pennants. The central part is known as the lantern.

    Catholic Cathedral Interior

    The inside of the Catholic Cathedral is bathed in coloured light as the sun streams in through the lantern-like roof. The walls are hung with the banners of other catholic diocese throughout England.

    Its quite dark inside the Cathedral - but nore beautiful than its exterior.
    Hope this gives you an idea of the height of those arches and at the far end is the ornate high altar.

    Anglican Cathedral Interior

    by sandysmith Written May 13, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Miraculously the cathedral escaped almost unscathed during the two world wars - one bomb penetrated the roof space.
    The interior has many beautiful stained glass windows to admire.

    The Anglican cathedral has a memorial to the Hillsborough football disaster just outside. Seeing the flowes here is always a poignant reminder of the tragic loss suffered.
