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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
In front of the Anglican Cathedral is a memorial to those who died in the Hillsborough football stadium disaster in 1989.
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.
Beautiful both outside and in try to visit it on a sunny day when the light is thrown across the circular space.
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.
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.
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.
Some cool cathedrals in Liverpool. There is the met, the anglian and of course the bombed out cathedral.
