St Peter's opened amid great celebration on 16th April 1863, at that time the only church in Britain in the Roman Basilican style.The Irish architect John Miller Bryson worked from plans drawn by Francesco Gualandi of Bologna, which in turn were modelled on the Basilica of San Crisogono in Trastevere, Rome. St Peter's was originally the 'Church Of All Nations' and throughout the 1860s attracted congregations of many nationalities. A Polish chapel was established in the crypt. The excellence of the music attracted people of many faiths.
