Not your typical gothic architecture — apparently it is Neo-Byzantine Interior is not as ostentatious as some in Italy and France but still impressive.

By London's standards, this Cathedral is a newie. The foundation stone was laid in 1895 and it was completed in 1903. It's the largest Catholic church in England and Wales and serves as the seat of the Archbishop of Westminster. The style is, to my...More

This church looks splendid from the outside and also has some beautiful chapels. There is a café (although down steep stairs) which serves reasonably priced snacks and drinks. If you are in the Victoria area it is well worth seeking this out.

Westminster Cathedral is certainly worth a visit. The impressive architecture immediately grabs one's attention. There is a lift (6£/person) that takes you up to the observation level where you can see good views over London.

The sight of Westminster Cathedral was a huge surprise for me. Not only as far as the neobyzantine architectural style including a campanile very atypical for London is concerned, but also because the name reminds a lot of Westminster Abbey (l have added a pic...More

Westminster Cathedral is a cavernous building that mixes tourism, a gift shop along with worship services. It is very busy at various times of the day. There are also opportunities to take tours of the cathedral tower. Please be advised that despite of the busyness...More

I visited Westminster Cathedral on my 50th birthday in August 2019 because I wanted to pray at the tomb of St John Southworth, a Reformation Saint. His chapel was lovely and peaceful and it was the highlight of my day. The Cathedral is free to...More

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

This person is confusing Westminster Cathedral with rip-off Westminster Abbey. It costs nothing to enter The Cathedral.

My best advice is just google Westminster Cathedral and you will see all the times for Mass. Weekdays differ from Weekends. And also it could depend on when you are traveling.
