Welcome to the Dome of Home, architecturally ambitious, little altered 1935 Catholic church, monumental in scale, baroque in its spatial conception, its hem-spherical dome seen from afar. This well-loved landmark, established as a Shrine Church in New Brighton in 2012, offers a Guide Book, organised guided tours and, new this year, webcam views from the roof. Watch the River Mersey from our new webcam views from the roof. Follow the link from our website. Guided Tours after The Three Queens Event on Monday 25th May 2015 from 3.30pm until 5pm and then at other time by arrangement. For further information see our website. Enjoy the peace and sanctuary. Open daily. All welcome.

Lovely church, lots of history. I might be a bit biased as I live so near but it is worth a visit. Right on top of the hill looking down on New Brighton.

I was baptised in this church. When it was just merely ss. Peter & Pauls. Nothing special. You will not miss anything if you do not go there and pay your respects.More
