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 Cathedral is amazing, unless you go and look at it with your own eyes, you can’t believe how big it is. The person on the door was really helpful and happy to answer all our questions and so were the other members of staff wandering around too. The organist was playing, albeit a little doleful. The stained glass windows... More

A very impressive visit in every respect! Strongly advise firstly speaking to a guide - you can't miss them and they love telling you about the cathedral that they are so obviously, and rightly proud of! Before visiting, I knew it was an impressive cathedral but had no idea of its true grandeur - which we started to appreciate as... More

This cathedral is breathtaking! It's worth the trip up the tower on a sunny day to see the amazing views. The shop is well stocked with a range of sensibly priced souvenirs and books. The cafe is a lovely place to relax, especially if there is an organ recitle. No other cathedral in the world can come close to the... More

As an excuse to visit places we wouldn't ordinarily go to, my wife and I have decided to try to visit every one of the forty two English Anglican Cathedral cities. This weekend we were in Liverpool, and amongst the other fun attractions in the city, we visited the impressive Cathedral. To be fair, from outside, its not the prettiest... More

The interior of this church is quite striking. I had the benefit of using Rick Steves' guide to help describe the nuances. Aside from a floor plan provided, there's not much else to help guide you through so if you're one of those who needs to know all the details, invest in a guidebook. Otherwise, if you're the type that... More

Incredible architecture in a beatiful city. Helps me have a minute glimpse of being able to glimpse how grand and vast God is. An opportunity to have a peaceful and reflective time while here.

The Cathedral is a big part of Liverpool's heritage and It is the largest of its kind in England. The Lady Chapel and the Great West Window are fascinating leading to the famous Bartlett bells. A trip to the top of the 500 foot tower is a must to get the spectacular views of the Liverpool skyline. The actual building... More

I had been to a concert the night before, so decided to enjoy the Eucharist at Liverpool Cathedral, which is just spectacular. The architecture is breathtaking and the service was tremendous - all about immigration - with a very spiritual aspect to our human view of immigration. An added bonus was a lady 'signing' the entire service for the benefit... More
