Owner description: Completed in 1978 this is the largest Anglican cathedral in Europe. Inside, the lack of adornments only adds to vastness of the "great space." 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.

This is one of the iconic buildings on the Liverpool Landscape commanding great views of the city. The architecture is magnificent and the inside is just wonderful. The guides are very friendly and helpful and will be only too willing to help regarding any queries you may have. The stained glass windows are beautiful and there is so much to... More

We have two sons at Liverpool University so have done some sightseeing in the city over the last 2 years. This was our first visit to the Anglican cathedral. It is a phenomenally beautiful building in many ways. If you like history and architecture, it's a must. The atmosphere is profoundly spiritual and the sheer size awesome. We were there... More

Although I have been living in Liverpool almost all my life (born in Bangladesh), I have to say this is the worlds greatest cathedral: worlds longest cathedral; worlds largest belltower, worlds highest and loudest bells; worlds largest gothic arches; worlds highest vaulting; worlds greatest organ (not largest). I used to be a tour guide for BDMA in UK when we... More

The cathedral is amazing on the inside! Really worth going and the view from the top is great! You see all the city from up there!

The cathedral is impressive, but the views from the roof are magnificent. Well worth the scary journey to the top.

Meal just okay, I just had coffee, husband had cooked meal. Slow service despite cathedral knowing thousands would be in town for the Giants, should have had more staff and been more prepared.

The architecture in this building has to be seen to appreciate it's magnificence. A visit up the tower is a must. On a clear day you can see Blackpool Tower and Chester cathedral from the top, as well as a panoramic view of the city.

The Liverpool Anglican Cathedral (largest in Europe) was recommended to me by Ian my guide/driver on the ‘Fab Four Taxi Tour’ (also highly recommended). I am so glad we went, the magnificent cathedral was designed by 22-year-old Giles Gilbert Scott a Catholic, it was his very first building! While I was there the Celtic music group 'Clannad' was practicing for... More

We are blessed living in Liverpool to have not one but two magnificent cathedrals. In this instance, we visited the Anglican Cathedral one Sunday afternoon to enjoy a coffee in their cafe. Its such a beautiful building and it's always such a pleasure to visit. Be it to attend a service, to admire the cathedral or simply to leisurely look... More
