At the heart of Liverpool's famous, iconic and always developing waterfront. Visually, nothing defines the city more than the Royal Liver and accompanying Cunard and Port of Liverpool buildings by Pier Head. Known collectively as the "Three Graces" and loosely based on the skyline of early 20th century Chicago, the interiors are sadly not open to the public.

One of the 'Three Graces' the Liver Building exemplifies the wealth and power of the Victorian industrial north. It is now used for functions and I attended a seminar. The function rooms are beautifully restored and boast a truly spectacular view across the Mersey.

Lovely building that really emphasises the coastline from the Mersey canal. Wish they still made buildings like this.

Probably one of the most iconic buildings associated with Liverpool and a great example of Liverpool's heritage. Those Liver Birds perched at the top certainly make a good photograph and the building like those others around it are great architectural landmarks. Plenty of see around...More

Towering over the docks, like a great beacon to travelers returning to port, the Liver Building stands a great example of what Victorian Liverpool is about.

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.
