While planning my 2010 trip to the UK, I realised that I had left the UK the first time round with so many regrets. I guess, in some ways, regrets can become a sort of incentive for one to return. One of the regrets I had was even having lived for a year next to this space shuttle cathedral, I had never managed to visit the inside. So this time, I made sure I did.

This is a Catholic cathedral, facing it, is the Anglican cathedral.

Surrounding the nave and the sanctuary are artworks of all sorts.
Larger scaled sculptures can also be found in different corners.
The round nave. Very different from our typical church.
Keep your eyes open, for you may miss out on so many artworks.
The unique lighting also makes the church different from other medieval (or earlier) cathedrals.
Art and religion. 藝術與宗教
A perfect match. 完美的結合
The cathedral's construction was completed in 1967. Seeing from its unusual design, it's not hard to imagine that there had been some architectural problems with the building upon its completion. The cathedral, as you can see from an earlier photo, stands right across from the Anglican Cathedral. These two cathedrals are, quite aptly, connected by Hope Street.
Although it was quite an experience to walk into the cathedral, I had to admit that I felt relieved once I walked out of it... Back to Earth again!
