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.

Fantastic, large cathedral with wide open spaces, no pews when we were there. Actually used for receptions etc. in addition to religious events. We were also surprised to find a cafe and shop inside!

Impressive building and worth a visit if you haven't been inside. There's also a cafe (which is odd) and strangely, a gift shop selling liverpool souvenirs!!! Good parking too.

Amazing cathedral, friendly staff. We spent a wonderful hour here and it exceeded all expectations. The architecture is fantastic. It's well within walking distance from the city centre. Go see it, you will not be disappointed!

We expected the Catholic Cathedral to be the star of the show but in fact the Anglican Cathedral is vastly more interesting and impressive once you know its history. Be sure to take a tour or speak to a guide who will astonish you with its story. It is unique!

Visited today. Absolutely stunning. Couldn't believe it was free. They do take donations if offered. Beautifully detailed building with stained glass windows. Peaceful to wander around & staff on hand if you have any questions. The gentleman as you enter is very informative & ensured we had a wee map & told us about toilet, food & drink facilities &...
