Having never visited Liverpool before, we were told to visit Pier Head and the surrounding docks.
We did no know what to expect, but found the area amazing. The signature building of Liverpool the Liver building, is right there, along with two other fabulous buildings - called the 3 Graces. It is such a clean area and lots to see,especially on a sunny day. We also boarded the Mersey Ferry here for a lovely river trip. Took lots of great photos as a reminder of our visit.

The three main buildings which face the Pier head are such wonderful examples of architecture at a time when Liverpool was a vibrant port. Catch the ferry and enjoy finding more about the buildings which made up the port in its heyday.

Just sit and have a picnic and watch the world go by. Great river views and backed by the 3 Graces it is the perfect place just to relax or have a walk past the statues.

The whole area around the Pier Head is full of remarkable early 20th century architecture, The obvious examples are the famous three: the Liver Building. the Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool building - but frequently overlooked is the George's Dock Building, an outstanding art deco creation that now serves as the ventilation system for the Mersey Road Tunnel. As well as exploring the immediate Pier Head area, head up Water Street towards the Town Hall for some more interesting architecture of this period.
