  • Great, modern looking cathedral located between two universities. Totally worth checking it out. You don’t get that “feeling” you normally get from huge cathedrals but it is still awesome to check.
  • Interesting building. The largest Catholic Church in the England. Very modern, reminiscent to 60s era but a peaceful place to rest and unburden your weary soul . Donations encouraged for its daily upkeep. Security on watch.
