Completed in 1978 after taking over 100 years to build, the Liverpool Cathedral is the largest Anglican cathedral in Europe and home to the seat of the Bishop of Liverpool. Inside, the lack of adornments only adds to the vastness of the "great space."
From the very early days of its origins and starting to build just after the turn of the 20th Century, through to its completion in 1978 after 74 long, hard, but rewarding years, the unfolding story of this great cathedral, the largest in the whole of the UK and the fifth largest in the world, is unique and fascinating.
The repairs of the Cathedral is now handled by just one family of stonemasons, who for several generations have tended to the overwhelmingly massive building.
A combination of elevator and stairs takes visitors to the exterior heights of the tower and some grand views of the city and landscapes below. A small fee is required for the Vista experience, but it is certainly worth it. Imagine panoramic views of the whole city, being able to see as far as the Welsh hills, and all for just a small fee. If you want to really see Liverpool, then this is the best way to do it.
The cathedral is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade I listed building and can be seen from just about every part of the city.
