See this handsome, historic city with fresh eyes; join an expert-led RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) tour of its loveliest buildings.
A walking tour organised by the Royal Institute of British Architects is the perfect way to sample Liverpool’s magnificent architecture at close quarters. These 2-hour walks tell the story of Liverpool’s past, present and future through the buildings and spaces that make up the city.
A highlight is the stunning St George’s Hall, one of the finest examples of neoclassical architecture in Europe. Nearby is the Central Library, which re-opened in 2013 after a £55m renovation. The William Brown Street building houses more than 4 million documents, books and archives in an idiosyncratic blend of the city’s old and new.
The tour also incorporates the famous Three Graces, a trio of magnificent edifices dominating the Liverpool Waterfront, as well as the trendy revamped Ropewalks area and the elegant Georgian Quarters.
Liverpool is in northwest England, just over 2 hours from London by train.
