Thank you for your review. It is a Great Space and does not have any pillars to hamper your view. I agree the display certainly makes you realise how long it took to build and shows from which end it was begun and completed.

Over the years I have taken many visitors to the cathedral. The free written language guides help them to understand the beauty of the building and a meal of Liverpool Scouse In the restaurant is always well received.
