This was just one of many attraction we visited whilst in the Salthouse dock on our narrow boat for a week in the summer. We were blown away by how new the building is both in construction terms but also in how its reaching out to the community by its facilities. Great shop and cafe and the view from the... More

The cathedral is big and beautiful but not so incredible. It is nice to go and take some pictures. The other cathedral in the city is huge and more beautiful.

As a liverpudlian i have been visiting the Anglican cathedral since the 1950's. This building took 74 years to complete its absolutely breathtaking the scale of the building & its history leading unto the inauguration stone in 1904 to completion in 1978. When visiting its worth watching the videos of the building work . Also visit St james cemetery &... More

The sheer internal size of this building never fails to impress me. It's just incredible. Made out of beautiful sandstone too. It's also a total opposite to the Catholic cathedral at the other end of Hope Street - ancient versus modern - but it is as impressive in its own way. The history of the construction of this cathedral is... More

Liverpool Cathedral lives up to its billing as the largest Anglican cathedral in the world. It is as beautiful as it is large. The Lady chapel, where I attended a service, has wonderful acoustics which perfectly complemented the voices of the visiting choir. Even that was as big as many parish parishes churches. Well worth a visit.

Rather ashamed to say I've not visited here before. It's absolutely beautiful; it has a very nice restaurant/cafe. It's in lovely surroundings. It's free....possible the only cathedral in the UK I've been to which doesn't charge! There is a charge to go up the tower etc but it's not that much if you want to do that and I there's... More
