If your lucky enough to capture a cinema screening of an old classic or even a local choir...this place is a must visit if in Liverpool. They... More

This is a great little church with beautiful detailing inside and out ,the gardens are well looked after (especially in the summer) and the Irish famine memorial is a touching tribute. It is great to watch the world go by when sitting on the front steps, don't let the local drunks put you off visiting here !!! A donation of... More

Absolutely breathtaking building, possible my favourite place in liverpool, it really does give me shivers. The play itself was very minimalistic with average acting but well worth the money paid, even though it rained slightly. Managed to get night time tickets which only improved the overall feeling of it, would definitely recommend to all!

With the statues of the two WWI soldiers playing football in the rain under a the open roof, this is a really evocative scene & it's free, but do make a donation.

This bombed out old church in the centre of Liverpool is like nothing I have experienced before. It had been converted into an art space for music and theatre as well as a quiet place for contemplation. A very moving place. Would highly recommend.

St Lukes church (the bombed out) stands at the top of Bold St and it's free to wander around the gardens but to help out donate and see inside and learn more about the history and what the future holds.

When I met my late wife in Liverpool in the mid-1960s, this church just stood there unloved behind railings. But even then, it had a sort of magical quality, as it made a statement about man's inhumanity to man. It was a favourite place of my wife's and she'd always find an excuse to walk past this church. She'd always... More

I didn`t expect much, but I found a nice little artsy garden inside something historic. I found myself just sitting there for far longer than planned, because it was such a nice vibe and the day was sunny. I almost forgot I was in the middle of a city. There is no entrance charge, but I was told (without any... More

The day I was there, they were asking for a donation of a £1 to get in which is nothing to see a bit of... More
