At the heart of Liverpool's famous, iconic and always developing waterfront. Visually, nothing defines the city more than the Royal Liver and accompanying Cunard and Port of Liverpool buildings by Pier Head. Known collectively as the "Three Graces" and loosely based on the skyline of early 20th century Chicago, the interiors are sadly not open to the public.

Beautiful architecture and home to the fabled Liver birds on its domes. The famous statue of the four Beatles is on the entrance path leading to the riverside walk almost opposite. Try to see it in both daylight and on an evening when a lot...More

The liver building IS Liverpool- it's the most iconic building on the riverfront with the two birds (cormorants I think) facing in opposite directions- one towards the Mersey and one inland. Like other reviewers I feel it's same you can't look inside but it's still...More

Sadly you cannot venture inside this building unless of course you work there but from the outside it is a sight to behold. Amazing architecture and it gave me great pleasure to finally see the Liver birds on top of a building I have wanted...More

The most famous landmark of Liverpool and the most beautiful of the Three Graces. Also a living monument and as such not accessible. Would be nice to open parts of the building during weekends, when the offices are closed.

As far as I am aware the Royal Liver building is not open to the public for tours but only to people who have business to do in the building itself.
