  • Beautiful building which is a versatile asset to the city, hosting events, fairs, art installations and more. Kept immaculate and pristine, it is a cornerstone of the history of the city. Many different rooms and halls mean that I still haven't seen all of it after countless visits. Well worth a visit whatever the occasion
  • One of the most important buildings in the country. Good cafe and gift shop. Do the tour! Amazing organ, the biggest in England when installed, and still sounds absolutely superb. Nothing can be said about the architecture. This building was the blueprint for so many others.
  • A very beautiful historic building right in the middle of Liverpool. Go inside and ask someone to show you round and explain some of the artwork. There is a massive pipe organ in there too.
  • Went to the Athetic Union Ball here in 2017. Interior is brilliant, such a beautiful building. Veggie food choices on the night were heavy on the fennel... Not sure that was down to though
  • Intersting building to explore. From the old cells where they kept prisoners before sending them off to Australia to the court rooms above and then the great hall. Free to enter and you can explore at your own leisure with information boards all through the place to give you some background on the history.
