    There are many small crusifixion scenes placed on the walls between each of the sub-alters and if you look closely you will find they are all very gory indeed.

  • Cathedral in an historical style

    by 50939 Updated Nov 30, 2004

    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

    inside the RC cathedral

    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.

    Inside The Catholic Cathedral

    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.

    Gothic Arches

    Anglican interior

    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.

    stained glass in the Anglican

    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.

    football memorial

    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

    by ChrsStrl Written Feb 19, 2003

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Liver Building from the roof

    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 interior

    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.
