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.

Not the prettiest outside

Not the prettiest of buildings from the outside, it makes up for that on the inside. I was lucky enough to experience a young African Choir testing the acoustics, beautiful.

The Cathedral is massive and spectacular, the interior is just overwhelming and beautiful. It would be a shame to visit Liverpool and not go in there especially that it's free of charge. The tower visit is paid 5,5 GBP and it is worth visiting on a sunny day. The view is mainly city view, so it's not 'breathtaking' - just... More

I was up this end of Liverpool and had an hour or so to spare so decided to have a look around the grounds and interior to the cathedral. With it not being a planned trip we were not expecting much and we were wrong. The design to the building is phenomenal and i was blown away by the the... More

Unfortunately the Cathedral had a graduation ceremony on in the afternoon we intended to visit so came back and did The Twilight Tower Tour. Brilliant sun set worth the climb of 108 stairs. Would help if there were information boards around The Tower so visitors knew what/where they were looking at as at first we didn’t realise that there was... More

We attended our son's graduation ceremony at the cathedral on July 11th 2016. The building was a great space and has a fantastic organ ( apparently the biggest in the UK)

Liverpool Cathedral is apparently the biggest cathedral in England, at least by land covered. It a much more modern building in comparison to some of the more well known Cathedrals around the UK but still worth a look just to marvel at how massive it is.

Definitely visit here. The size of it is unbelievable and there's an observation deck in the tower accessible by a combination of stairs and lifts with amazing views. If you are lucky you might even catch the choir practicing

Worth a look, just for the scope of the thing. It is visible across Liverpool like something that landed from another world. Huge. Inspiring.
