Cathedral in an historical style
The Liverpool Cathedral (Anglican) was build in the style of Neo-Gothic.
It looks much older than the Metropolitan Cathedral. But it was finished later (in the 1978; begin was 1904).
RC Cathedral Interior
The inside of the Catholic Cathedral is visually just as interesting as its exterior with the colourful stained glass windows and wall pennants. The central part is known as the lantern.
Catholic Cathedral Interior
The inside of the Catholic Cathedral is bathed in coloured light as the sun streams in through the lantern-like roof. The walls are hung with the banners of other catholic diocese throughout England.
In front of the Anglican Cathedral is a memorial to those who died in the Hillsborough football stadium disaster in 1989.
Its quite dark inside the Cathedral - but nore beautiful than its exterior.
Hope this gives you an idea of the height of those arches and at the far end is the ornate high altar.
Anglican Cathedral Interior
Miraculously the cathedral escaped almost unscathed during the two world wars - one bomb penetrated the roof space.
The interior has many beautiful stained glass windows to admire.
And this is the city center, cars, buses...And you can see another huge cathedral, catholic this time.
Idid not have the chance to go inside but I walked around the Cathedral and it took me more than 15 minutes...so you get an idea of its huge dimensions
The Anglican cathedral has a memorial to the Hillsborough football disaster just outside. Seeing the flowes here is always a poignant reminder of the tragic loss suffered.
This is the affectionate name given to the Roman Catholic cathedral in Liverpool with its imaginative roof.
When in the Anglican cathedral
Do go up the tower. You ascend by lift and then 108 steps. it is an easy climb but the lifts sometimes require a little wait - they take only four at a time.
The views from the top are good.
The Anglican cathedral
Much less striking than the modern RC cathedral the Anglican one is fascinating in its own right. The interior has a bridge that crosses it.
The inside of the RC Cathedral
Beautiful both outside and in try to visit it on a sunny day when the light is thrown across the circular space.
