We had a look around the gardens today and it is what it says on the plaque ........relaxing and tranquil. It's a iconic building frozen in time and Liverpool should go out of their way to preserve it and it's memories.

Visit. Reflect. Remember. St Luke's Church serves as a poignant reminder of how lucky we are to live in a land free of war and to how much our city and others across the world suffered in the past. Let's try not to let it happen again.

We were surprised when we saw that the church is empty insde and overgrown by plants inside! We managed to get inside and we loved it even more. You have to see it by yourself. It's my favourite building in Liverpool among all I saw.

love the Bombed Out Church, it is a still beautiful building despite the bomb damage and a poignant reminder of 2nd World War. It is also a fantastic performance space, and a chilled out bit of green in the city centre. Visit and support it if you can as it is currently under threat from the Council and developers

A fantastically beautiful church that was bombed during the second world war, it's shell left as a poignant reminder to what happened to the city. However, the church serves as a venue to a whole host of arts events, so don't think it's a boring empty shell! Came here for a Freeze Liverpool clubbing event, hosting world class DJs. A... More

I visited here during the weeks leading up to Xmas and wasn't disappointed took some lovely pictures as the church was lit up from the inside and a band was playing, the colours were spectacular. there is no roof to this church as it is a monument to the terrible bombing over Liverpool during WW2 and it has been preserved...

Went to the church to take some great photo shoots but gates were closed so managed only few from the outside. Nevertheless it's definitely worth another visit! I really like the idea of it being left as it is for memories..and how lucky for us that the bomb went straight in the roof and didn't explode :)

A bomb DID actually hit this church. Liverpool suffered terrible loss of life and damage to property during Hitler's blitzes, but although the interior of St Luke's was destroyed, its outer walls remained intact. To this day, it serves as a poignant reminder of the horrors of those times and has,quite deliberately, been left untouched. More recently, art and cultural... More

How lovely to keep the remains of the church as a memorial to all those people in the city who died during the second world war. And great to see that it is still in use for art events. Only wish I was around to see the outdoor film shows. Maybe another visit is needed. And I believe the Christmas... More

The outer walls are all that remain of the church, but it is interesting to see and serves as a poignant reminder of the damage from WWII. You weren't allowed inside when I was there, but it was still interesting to walk around the outside and see what was left of St. Luke's.
