Each year over 100,000 people visit the Cathedral- people with or without faith- all will find a warm welcome and the chance to experience a little bit of peace in the heart of the city.

Virtual Tour

The 2019 National Lottery Grant ‘Discovering Pugin’ enabled NTU to produce a full laser scan of the Cathedral building to create a 3D fly through model to be made of the building and demonstrates how the original building was constructed and visualises Pugin’s original designs. This ensures there will be a digital record for posterity and provide an invaluable resource for interpretation and eventually combining it with paint research analysis will allow us to appreciated Pugin’s original interior too.
