There’s also The Tower Experience with magnificent 360˚ views from the rooftop of the cathedral. This includes the Great Space Film and the Bell Chamber.

The Metropolitan Cathedral Of Christ The King

The Metropolitan Cathedral Of Christ The King

The awe-inspiring Metropolitan Cathedral is a landmark you don’t want to miss. It was supposed to have a similar style to the previously mentioned Anglican Cathedral, but due to war, this idea was abandoned. The modern circular cathedral opened its door in 1967 and is famous for the breathtaking Lutyens Crypt & Treasury and large stained glass windows.

You can visit Lutyens Crypt between 10 am and 4 pm, Monday to Saturday. Tickets are £5 per person or £12 for a family. Guided tours are also available and they’re free.
