This is a hall worthy of lots of visits, there is so much to see like the rare Minton tiles, the catacombs....great to see as a guided tour late at night. So much going on with different events, you can actually walk round the old cells and really feel the atmosphere of how the prisoners must have felt before being... More

As a first time visitor to Liverpool I did some research online as to what to visit. St. George's hall was high on my list and I wasn't disappointed. The café as you enter was very welcome for a warming drink! I even went back to the café at the end of my visit for lunch. I followed the tour... More

Popped in to the St George's Hall yesterday and found that it was the last day this year that the Milton Floor was on display (then being covered with a wooden floor for another year). What a stunning floor it was - set off at both ends my beautiful stained glass windows, and at the end a Magnificent Organ (the... More

Luckily we visited on 13th August, the last day to view the Milton floor before it's covered again. Architecture, sculpture, stained glass, organ, visit to the old Crown Courts, prisoners cells below. Whipping posts and whipper to explain. What Victorians could do with wealth!

I have been in here a number of times, but went in this time to see the floor which is only available to view for a short time each year. I was also with a friend who no longer lives in Liverpool and had not seen aspects of the building. It is always enjoyed by any visitors to the area... More

This is one of the most wonderful buildings I've ever visited. The ceiling of the main hall is absolutely gorgeous. I loved the huge organ at one end of the hall and the idea that in years gone by it was a dance hall. It was fascinating to see and to learn about the cells, courtroom and past convicts. The... More

We came on the train from the Wirral (on a special saver ticket) and people were very friendly and helpful when they heard the two young men hadn't been to Liverpool before. Someone suggested here and they were amazed by the court room and cells which were free to see. The wonderful tiled floor was uncovered and it was worth... More

One of Liverpool's most iconic landmarks. Classical architecture and recently restored. Do not miss it on your visit.
