    Anglican Cathedral

    by William1982 Written Jun 30, 2003

    The biggest church of its kind in the United Kingdom. This church dominates the Liverpool skyline, as seen from the River front. Take a tour weekdays and go up the tower for fantastic views of Liverpool.

    Liverpool Cathedral

    by dixonchan Written Oct 26, 2004

    Liverpool Cathedral is only 100 years old but its life has seen many changes.

    The Cathedral Church of Christ, Sir Giles Gilbert Scott’s masterpiece, is built on St. James’ Mount and is visible from miles around: “a visible witness for God in the midst of the great city”.

    Visit this cathedral and immerse yourself in 100 years of history.

  • A Church of its time

    by 50939 Updated Nov 30, 2004

    The Catholics built in Liverpool not in an old style.

    The Metropholitan Cathedral was built in the 1960s with a lot of modern materials. Not all of them was tested enough. So the Cathedral had to been renovated in the last years for 8 Mio. GBP. This was a good investment!

    This is the affectionate name given to the Roman Catholic cathedral in Liverpool with its imaginative roof.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Gothic Arches

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    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.

    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.

    When in the Anglican cathedral

    by ChrsStrl Written Feb 19, 2003

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Metropolitan Cathedral

    by darkjedi Written Apr 28, 2008

    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.
