A combination of elevator and stairs takes visitors to the exterior heights of the tower and some grand views of the city and landscapes below. A small fee is required for the vista experience. « less

Being inside this magnificent building makes one feel very insignificant. I was amazed at how warm it was, due to the sandstone retaining heat I am told.

I’ve not been inside the Anglican Cathedral for years, I’m not religious but can’t fail to appreciate the stunning scale and architectural skill and achievement of the place. You find yourself walking around just staring up at the vast height of the ceilings. There is lots of art work to see, from classical style to more contemporary (including a couple... More

The combination of wonderful modern art works and stained glass takes the breath away. Entry is free and the volunteers are understandably eager to share their knowledge of the place with you. It is DEFINITELY worth the small entry fee to visit the vast crypt. Afterwards, walk down the street to the C of E Cathedral for a totally different... More

Unlike the RC Cathedral up the road, this one did not move me at all. It is big, that is true indeed. The outside impressed me more than the inside. Worth a visit. The kids were blown away by its dimensions. Not the prettiest.

This magnificent building dominates the city skyline, but just gets bigger and even more impressive the closer you get. The craftsmanship is fantastic, but it's when you get inside that this building really comes to life. It's simply awe inspiring. Ran out of time, so couldn't go up the tower, but that's a good reason to come back, if we... More

The scale of the Anglican Cathedral is just amazing and it's absolutely beautiful inside. The atmosphere is nice too - it's friendly and very unstuffy for a cathedral. Designed by the architect who built the Battersea Power Stations, you can see the similarities, particularly in scale. A must see if you are in Liverpool.

What a magnificent building - spent 3 hours there and you could spend a day there is so much to see. Were lucky enough to here the choir - just arrived and they were practicing a real treat.

The Cathedral dominates the skyline of Liverpool and close up it's simply massive. It's really difficult to believe that it is less than 40 years old, such is the quality of the interior work. In addition to the café and shop it also has its own car park.

This Cathedral is a must see if you find yourself in Liverpool. It is magnificent from the outside but inside it is truly wonderful with the craftsmanship on show of the highest quality. If you are brave enough you can go up the tower but you need to pay for this.
