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

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
