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.

Visited on25th and was really impressed with the architecture and the gorgeous stain glassed windows. However it was the lively atmosphere which we found enjoyable. This was no dark building with people speaking in whispers.There was loads going on when we visited. An art exhibition and a lovely guitar concert not to mention a well stocked large gift shop. All... More

The place is gigantic. Huge. Lots of very nice architecture and plenty to see, read about. Lots of folk there but seemed empty due to the size of the place. Well worth a visit.

We had a good old walk around here and we enjoyed it. It is a huge building and has a lot to offer. There were some exhibitions on when we visited. Worth a look.

No trip to Liverpool would be complete without a visit to Liverpool Cathedral. The imposing structure can be seen across the entire city and you can't fail to be impressed by the architecture. From the moment you walk in you have to stop for a few moments just to take in the vast space. Once you have been around the... More

Another great place to visit in Liverpool. Free to enter (donations gratefully accepted) free parking first half hour, lovely gift shop and care. But best part is just to stand inside and admire the work of Gilbert-Scott!

Fantastic building and a great story of how it was built. Go the roof viewing area its spectacular if the weather is good. There are 2 lifts which some many find uncomfortable as they only take 6 people, and then a 100 steps final climb on foot. The staff do make you aware of this though.

It is hard to believe that a twenty-one year old man designed this work of art. The cathedral is just stunning. One could spend hours gazing at everything there is to see in this beautiful cathedral.
