  • We visited the cathedral just to look around on Saturday when we accidentally arrived just as a carol concert was starting. The choir and the sounds were really breath taking along with the cathedral ...  more »
  • Visited recently for Winter Market and again for school activity. Brilliant volunteers, very knowledgeable and helpful. Events very well run and atmosphere relaxing even when busy.

  • Superb visit to the longest cathedral in the world Very impressive building, really easily reachable both by foot or wheelchair (it’s all accessible with ramps and very even pavements) and by car and there is a great big car park. Nearby are the St James Gardens, which are super green and a great spot to just sit on the grass and chat or read, not very busy too, but beware there is no direct route from the Cathedral to the gardens, you’ve got to talk on the sidewalk of the main street. Inside the cathedral, I felt the clergy were very welcoming, even if you are from a different Christian denomination. I can see why it’s a grade I listed building, especially the facade outside is magnificent. It’s a shame there were so few people, though I did go at around 4.15 pm which is about 45 minutes before it closed. The building is so large there is space for both quiet prayer and for tourists to “look around” and neither gets in the way of the other, so I do hope more people go and visit. You could also climb up the tower and find yourself at 500ft above sea level. I’m told there is also a lift, so mothers with pushchairs and disabled people can also go and enjoy the view. Sadly, the last admission to the Tower Experience is 30 minutes before closing and I didn't know that at the time, so I missed it. However, on my next visit to Liverpool I shall look forward to doing this - hope you go and do it too!
  • WOW. This is such an amazing place. Many choristers certainly caught my attention. A tall boy with brown hair standing on the end was standing out wonderfully, his voice echoed around the building. Additionally, he done a solo with was breathtaking. 5 Stars!
  • Considering the size, you can see this cathedral quite well even from the Albert dock. And you can't realise the stateliness until you're in front of the entrance. Still quite modern, hence with limited history to tell, this cathedral is still worth a visit.
  • Visited this building many times. Never ceases to draw me into its architectural beauty. For a 5£ fee, one can access the roof for a fantastic view. Be prepared for a few steps!
  • Amazing, awe inspiring, stunning as a place of worship and as a piece of architecture. The graveyard in the old quarry at the front of the cathedral is quite spooky.
