About the cathedral
Described as “one of the great buildings of the world” Liverpool Cathedral is the masterpiece of Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, an iconic building on Liverpool’s famous cityscape. With its Foundation Stone laid in 1904, hundreds of skilled craftsmen then constructed the magnificent edifice which was opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1978.
We boast the country’s largest organ, the world’s heaviest and highest peal of bells, amazing panoramic views and an awesome and intimate interior.
We are home to a vibrant worshipping community with daily services offering traditional and contemporary worship. On weekdays, experience for free the exquisite Evensong sung by our magnificent choir. We are a safe place to explore the big questions of life through our discussions, our art and our study groups.
Liverpool Cathedral is a cultural and heritage destination. We’re an active participant in citywide events with innovative theatre and stimulating exhibitions. We’re a venue for all ages with frequent family activities, school visits and tour parties.
