Liverpool Cathedral Tours

star-5
31 reviews
Liverpool Cathedral
Discover a symbol of Liverpool and gain insight into the city’s history with a visit to the National Heritage-listed Liverpool Cathedral. As the largest religious building in Britain, the Anglican cathedral boasts neo-Gothic architecture, distinctive artwork, and a 328-feet (100-meter) tower that provides sweeping views across River Mersey.
 
The Basics
To fully appreciate Giles Gilbert Scott’s famous design, visitors can opt to ascend the bell tower for panoramic vistas or simply explore the peaceful interior, looking out for installations by notable artists, including Tracey Emin. If you’re tight for time, some tours offer a city overview package that includes the cathedral along with other top attractions. For brave souls, other tours offer after-hours insight into some of the city’s spookiest spots, including the cathedral graveyard.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • With the world’s largest Gothic arches and the UK’s biggest organ, the cathedral is a must-see for anyone interested in architecture and design.
  • Access to the building itself is free, but a small donation is encouraged.
  • Some tours include the Tower Experience as part of the package; otherwise, there is a charge to enter the bell tower.
  • Be prepared for a lot of climbing as the tower has 108 stairs.
  • The main cathedral floor is wheelchair accessible from the parking lot. Elevator access is available to different ground floor levels and the Lady Chapel.
 
How to Get There
Liverpool Cathedral is just under a mile (1.3 kilometers) from Liverpool Lime Street. The walk from the city center is about 30 minutes. Bus routes 82 and 86 serve the cathedral, taking around 15 minutes from Liverpool One Bus Station. Some tours offer hop-on hop-off bus services, stopping near the cathedral.
 
When to Get There
The cathedral is an active place of worship, and therefore visitor access is restricted during services. Interested members of the public are welcome to join the congregation for the service; otherwise, it’s best to avoid Sunday morning visits.
 
Why is Giles Gilbert Scott’s Architecture So Famous?
Liverpool Cathedral’s architect, Giles Gilbert Scott, also designed the UK’s famous red telephone boxes, as well as London’s Battersea Power Station, among other notable landmarks. His work mixed modernism with Gothic features and created well-known structures out of otherwise functional buildings, all of which are still well worth a visit.
Address: 20 St James’ Road, Liverpool L1 7BY, England

Private Guided Tour of Liverpool in V-class Mercedes

star-5
I will explain how and why the city has changed in a lighthearted informative way and help you plan the rest of your day. There are very few licensed driver guides in Liverpool and no other Liverpool Qualified Guide has a V-class Mercedes. I am a Beatles expert, but I prefer to mix up the legacy left by the fab4 with the maritime history and the impact of the new waterfront buildings on the World Heritage Site. I will talk about the Georgian Quarter and the slave trade and you will visit the Victorian Round Reading Room and be driven through the world heritage site. My tours are family friendly and I will help you plan your day out and of course the rest of your visit after spending 3 hours with me.
