City Centre Tips (6)

Wellington's Column

This towering monument, standing at over 40 metres in height, is a memorial to one of England's leading military figures of the 19th century. Following the Duke of Wellington's death in 1852, the column was commissioned in 1861 and designed by the Lawson brothers of Edinburgh.
The statue points in the direction of the Duke's most notorious military victory, Waterloo. Listed around the base of the monument are the name of other notable battles where Wellington was victorious, primarily in Spain and France.

Dale Street

An avenue which contains a plethora of 19th century architectural bulwarks from a prosperous port-faring past, the facades here are highly sculpted and embedded with statuary. A walk from the centre towards the docks reveals the gems listed below.

Architecture Tour

The architecture is grand and diverse in Liverpool and is probably one good reason why it’s nominated as a European city of culture for 2008.
Firstly along the water front you’ll find the Three Graces, these are the three most impressive along waterfront - The Royal Liver Building, The Cunard Building and the former offices of the Mersey Docks and Harbour Board.
Secondly Liverpool is unique as it home to not one, but two cathedrals – The Catholic and the Church of England.
Thirdly the Radio city tower which is home to the local radio station 96.7fm Radio City offers guided tours on Saturday and Sundays at a cost of just £4.00 per adult and £2.50 per child.

Lime Street Intersection

This is the intersection near the Lime Street train station in Liverpool. This shows some of the older buildings in the business district of Liverpool. I really fell in love with Liverpool and not just because of The Beatles. The city itself had a very old charm to it and yet had some newer modern sections also.

A nice square in the centre of Liverpool and a good meeting point. On this square are some shops, food outlets, the Liverpool Playhouse and the Radio City Tower - our next destination.

Rodney street is a beautiful Georgian street at St James Mounts. I felt like being back in Dublin for a while here...
