Description: Completed in 1978 this is the largest Anglican cathedral in Europe...
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.

Another must-do for any visitor to the City. This huge sandstone Gothic building is awe-inspiring. It is stunning, from the enormous, altar, the largest Gothic arch in the World, fabulous organ, and beautiful Lady Chapel, this is a true Cathedral in the grand-style. It's soaring central tower can be accessed at certain times by lift, providing amazing views from it's... More

Make sure to check out the whispering archway and find the carved mouse on the tomb under the archway. Also make sure to find the red phone box, designed by the the architect, Giles Gilbert Scott - great idea to place his smallest design inside his largest - the cathedral. I didn't go up the tower to see the view,... More

Go up the tower if you're fit enough. The views are amazing. Very good restaurant/cafe. Evensong is a must if you love sacred music. Giles Gilbert Scott's attention to detail in designing all the furniture makes this a wonderful piece of architecture whilst still retaining the feel of a sacred space.

Even if you are not of any religious persuasion, this cathedral is worth a visit for its sheer scale and architecture. The blurb states that the cathedral is the biggest in the country and you truly do feel minuscule when you step inside.

The Anglican Cathedral is a remarkable building and well worth a visit, but it suffers by comparison with the Catholic Cathedral down the road. It is a vast building (the biggest in the country), and mock medieval, but the brown stone and matt surfaces on woodwork and gilding, make it curiously gloomy - unlike most real medieval cathedrals in Britain....

You have to go inside this Cathedral to really appreciate the soaring height of the building. For a small fee you can go up to the top of the Tower for fantastic views of Liverpool (there is a lift, however still 108 steps to climb to the top). There is a shop and a cafe with an interesting view.

Amazing architecture huge humble surroundings. I live in Liverpool and have only been twice. Check out the gardens at the side which wind around back up to the cathedral with a Delicous view of the Mersey and the Wirral. Look out for a healing spring in the gardens. In the centre near the back wall close to a small pool... More
