Liverpool Anglican Cathedral

Holiday Travel Guide
Liverpool Anglican Cathedral featuring heritage architecture, a church or cathedral and religious aspects

Britain’s biggest cathedral is home to stunning and sometimes controversial religious art, heavenly architecture and some of the best views over Liverpool.  

View the world’s highest Gothic arches and the United Kingdom’s largest pipe organ when you visit the stunning Liverpool Anglican Cathedral. Explore a treasure trove of artworks from across the centuries in the cathedral’s main hall, then make your way to the top of the main tower to enjoy panoramic views over the city.

Liverpool Anglican Cathedral was designed in 1903 by Giles Gilbert Scott, but was not actually built until 1978. The cathedral remains a place of prayer and is one of Liverpool’s most visited attractions.

As you enter the cathedral, look for the work of controversial artist Tracey Enim. The pink neon For You work sits beneath the Great West Window. Visit the Lady Chapel in the southeast corner and see the 15th-century statue of the Virgin Mary. Also in the chapel, a group of portrait windows on the west wall depict noble women from all walks of life, many of who called Liverpool home.

Climb the tower to take in some of the finest views across the city of Liverpool. Standing at 331 feet (101 meters) the tower is reached by two separate elevators and 108 steps so may not be suitable for the very young and very old.

Make your way to the Holy Spirit Chapel to observe more exquisite artwork. The chapel was not part of Scott’s original architectural plans; nonetheless the panel of Christ in prayer is one of the cathedral’s highlights. You will also find the magnificent Redemption sculpture, depicting Christ welcoming those who choose to enter. On the third floor, the Elizabeth Hoare Gallery is home to a beautiful collection of Victorian and Edwardian embroidery. The cathedral also holds a selection of stunning paintings and hosts art exhibitions throughout the year.

Visitors are welcome all day from Monday and Saturday, and on Sundays around the times of services. Entry is free, however, a small admission fee may be required to visit the tower and the gallery. The cathedral is a 30-minute stroll from the city center. There is a large parking lot for those arriving by car.
