Pier Head, Liverpool

4.7
Part of the Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City UNESCO World Heritage Site, Pier Head is located in the city center and is one of the most impressive waterfronts in the world. The focal point of the waterfront is a trio of buildings--the Royal Liver Building, the Cunard Building, and the Port of Liverpool Building. Each building stands on a separate plot, and is expressed in a different architectural style, rich in symbolic ornamentation.
