The Cathedral was only completed in 1978. It was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott when he was only 22 years old. It is a great space, without pillars or pews, the space is able to host huge concerts, exhibitions and fine dining on the main floor...more

Totally took my breathe away. The structure of the building and history is inspirational and the view from the tower is amazing.

Taller, longer and higher than all or most. Heaviest bells and 200,000 pieces of stained glass in the windows. Stand in the Nave in front of the wooden doors and look to the alter framed by the Gothic bridge to appreciate the beauty and scale...More

Thank you Richard S for your review. Next time you come to the Cathedral ask for the "nostrils" one of the greatest views you will see in the Cathedral.

We went to see the knife statue (which had gone to Hull!) but it is an awesome building which compares to some of the European Cathedrals we have seen. Make sure you visit the ladies chapel at the back right of the cathedral.

Huge Cathedral, pretty interior, lifts and steps past the bells to the top of the tower... Great views.

Enormous, impressive, austere and memorable. Certainly not overwhelmingly spiritual, as cathedrals go, but a ‘must see’ if you are in Liverpool.

The Cathedral is a must visit location in my opinion. Any denominations are welcome. The building is stunning and famous for the tower which is accessible via a lift and short up the stone steps (not for the fainthearted) Also famous for the stain glass...More
