This is an iconic building situated in the Royal Albert Dock. You can see it from most places in the city, and it guides you back to the docks. Love the Liver birds resting on the top. Lovely view of this building from the river...More

One of the iconic ship buildings along the Mersey waterfront. This one is just as worthy as the others to visit nd take a photo. We could not get inside.

This is a beautiful heritage building indeed. The clock and the liver bird at the top are the symbols of this old port.

As far as I am aware the Royal Liver building is not open to the public for tours but only to people who have business to do in the building itself.
