Didn't intend to do this place,but by accident started the tour and was pleasantly surprised at range of historic parts of the Hall you were allowed access to.Loved the dock and the Great Hall showing a real sense of opulence and splendour.

We had a guided tour. Guide was very informative and the whole building was impressive. Nothing to dislike. Need to be agile to visit some parts.

We queued for over half an hour outside to view the Giant Grandma sleeping during the Giants weekend. When we finally got in we were not only amazed at the Giant Grandma but also how magnificent the building is. The scale and decoration of the building takes your breath away and from the outside the architecture is incredible.

As part of the open art, The Giants, to celebrate 100 years of WW1, the Grandmother giant was lying in state in the memorial hall. The place was impressive, with fantastic stain-glassed windows and very prominent organ and pipes.

Attended a great, huge artisan fair last weekend in St George's Hall which is a wonderful venue - beautiful architecture, very atmospheric place steeped in history. I've previously toured the underground cells where people pending trial for petty thefts in the Victorian era were incarcerated, and the chambers where many legal trials have taken place. I've also attended interesting public... More

St. George's Hall is one the UK's great buildings.Pevsner rated it very highly. I went when the Minton tiled floor was uncovered and seeing that was worth the train fare alone from London. So time your visit to Liverpool, when the floor is uncovered.

On a recent visit to Liverpool my husband and I attended a concert, given by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, in the stunningly beautiful Concert Room. It was a truly magical experience to listen to such wonderful music in such a special place. Concerts are held there regularly so do go if you get a chance - at the very least,... More

I organised a guided tour of St George’s Hall for a Local History Group in Preston and our guide was Steve Binns, a local historian. He also does tours of the Town Hall but has never seen either building as he is blind, but he has a vast knowledge of the history of St George’s Hall and I assume also... More

I visited St George's Hall as part of an office team building day. It truly is a stunning building with many hidden secrets and the tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly, great pity the tour didn't last longer.

A very impressive building in a lovely part of the city. Easy to follow tour that ends up with you coming up from the cells in the dock of the main court. The main hall has been fully restored and is very impressive.
