Here’s 5 reasons you need to visit this iconic building:
This place is an architectural masterpiece.
In 1901 the competition to design Liverpool Cathedral was opened. In 1903, the winning concept was submitted by 22-year-old Architect, Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. Surviving two world wars, on 25 October 1978, work was finally complete, with an opening service attended by Her Majesty.
Sadly, Sir Giles never lived to see his magnificent design in all its glory, passing away in 1961.
Liverpool Cathedral is one of the largest religious buildings in the world, and it’s the largest cathedral in the UK. Its awe-inspiring size and grandeur make it a true architectural marvel.
Stunning Stained Glass Windows
The Cathedral is home to the largest and heaviest set of bells in the world, and its collection of stunning stained glass windows is nothing short of breathtaking. These windows showcase intricate designs and vibrant colours that tell various stories.
What a View!
The tower of Liverpool Cathedral offers an unbeatable panoramic view of the city. If you’re up for the climb, you’ll be rewarded with a breathtaking vista that stretches as far as the eye can see.
Currently exhibiting Identity, Liverpool Cathedral’s largest installation to date, ‘Identity’ introduces seven illuminated columns, suspended over the Well. It has also been home to Gaia, the floating earth, and also Museum of the Moon!
