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.

On a brilliant,hot Summer's day, the accent of the bell tower was incredible. The journey up is pretty simple - first part is by lift, followed by easy steps (not the long, narrow, winding steps of medieval cathedrals!) On the way you get to see...More

Worth visiting. Last gothic cathedral in England. The graveyard next to it, it’s peaceful and worth a walk even in the rain.

Liverpool's Anglican Cathedral isn't old, it was built in the 20th century and the exterior certainly isn't going to compete with Salisbury, it certainly isn't 'perpendicular'. The architect, Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, who also designed the red telephone box, said he didn't want any columns...More
