The Anglican Cathedral dominates Liverpool’s skyline. Marvel at the inside of the great building and climb up its tower for spectacular views.
Liverpool is rightly proud of its two magnificent cathedrals, Anglican and Metropolitan, located at opposite ends of Hope Street.
Gothic in design, Liverpool Cathedral is the largest Anglican cathedral in Britain and the fifth largest in the world. Designed by architect Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, who also created the iconic British red telephone box, the cathedral was completed in 1978. Go on the Tower Experience, which takes visitors to the very top of the cathedral for a bird’s eye view of the city.
The journey to the top of the 100m (331ft) tower features two lifts and 108 steps, but is well worth it for the breathtaking views stretching to North Wales, Cheshire and Southport on a clear day. Twilight Tours take place weekly in the summer, for an atmospheric nighttime experience.
Liverpool is in northwest England, just over 2 hours from London by train.
