Overview

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. The tower is 110m high and is the best view in the city.

Having seen it described by tony Robinson it was good to see it 'in the flesh'. Perhaps it is little foreboding. The cafe on the balcony serves scouse. A Liverpool stew - very tasty.

A cathedral almost in the classic mould designed by a famous architect. Huge open space not too cluttered with monuments. Beautiful Lady Chapel at the east end of the main body of the building
