Liverpool Cathedral

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, the story of this great cathedral, the largest in the UK and the fifth largest in the world, is unique and fascinating.

About this church

Liverpool Anglican Cathedral is Britain's biggest Cathedral and the 5th largest in Europe. The cathedral is free to enter, however the tower and audio tour is highly recommended. Book tickets through VisitLiverpool by clicking on the 'buy tickets' button to save time!

The Cathedral is a world-class visitor attraction with a full programme of events from Cream Classics music sets to large gala dinners and conferences.

Travel to the top of the tower on the 'Tower Experience' and enjoy unrivalled panoramic views from 500ft above sea level! Here visitors can see the city and way beyond, it's also one of the best places to catch a Mersey sunset.

The Tower Experience includes the Great Space Film on how the cathedral was built (available in 7 languages), a visit to the Bell Chamber to see the world's heaviest peal of bells and of course a trip to the top!

The Cathedral also offers a choice of two dining venues. The Mezzanine Cafe inside the Cathedral and the Welsford that even serves a traditional Roast Dinner on a Sunday.
