A friendly, relaxed greeting where we were encouraged to make the most of our tour and actively ask questions

A trip up the tower is a must and offers great panoramic views of this fabulous city

The cathedral itself was very interesting and we could have spent even more time her to learn more about it

Cafes provided good quality food and drinks at reasonable prices and staff in all areas very friendly, as you would expect

With so much to see you could easily miss out the cathedral which would be a shame. Even for a non believer this a beautiful, spiritual place to spend a little time during a busy few days in Liverpool. Highly recommend.

The cathedral is phenomenal. Not just the scale of the building but the human story behind it. It was only completed in the 70's after having been started in the early 1900's but the biggest bit of the history is that completion was funded by the people of the city.

The Anglican cathedral is a beautiful building. It's fee entry but there is an opportunity to make a voluntary contribution on entry. There are plenty of quiet corners to sit and contemplate or you can walk through the main building and wonder at the awe inspiring architecture. The windows are truly beautiful, especially on a sunny day. Well worth a visit

Spent a day in Liverpool and made a point of going to see the cathedral. Its only a five minute walk from the centre and its a free attraction (although we did make a donation). The size of the cathedral from the outside is as impressive as its high ceiling on the insides and the large stained glass windows are amazing. Its worthwhile checking on the website to see if there are any services on before you visit as some parts can be closed off

A good idea to check out the website before visiting to see if there are any special events on, as you may need to book these in advance. Don't worry about trying to squeeze in a bite to eat, because there is a café, which closes around 4pm weekdays, and earlier on the weekend. If you're feeling energetic, you can also buy a ticket to the tower, which gives panoramic views of the city!

The Liverpool Anglican Cathedral is one of the largest and tallest in the world, and easy to find - not only for its stature, but the "Hop on, Hop off" bus stops very close by.

The Roman Catholic Cathedral is also within easy walking distance from this drop off point … both Cathedrals adorn the most beautiful stained glass! Worth seeing - and good for couples, solos, family and friends.

In Liverpool we have two cathedrals, the Anglican cathedral is the largest gothic building in Europe and took 74 years to finish.

We are so lucky in this country to have many magnificent buildings and Liverpool Cathedral is amongst them.

Until visiting the cathedral I didn't realise how recent it was built in contrast to a lot of other Cathedrals. I live in County Durham so I'm lucky enough to have the 500+ year old Durham Cathedral on my doorstep. It may not be 500 years old but it is still an impressive piece or architecture with the same feel or aura about it as you would get in any other church, Abbey or Cathedral.

Inside it is a busy little community hub with activities for the kids as you go around, a cafe/restaurant, shop and even a community art exhibition. When we entered the Cathedral there was a greeter who advised us on the route to take and things to look out for on our tour around. Throughout there is stunning architecture, with its own unique style relevant to the area. Massive stained glass windows rich in the areas history as well as artefacts dotted around. Whats more impressive is towards the back of the cathedral in a side section is a small chapel that was built as a temporary place of worship as the cathedral was built. This was also built in a way to look as a scaled down version of the finished product so people have an idea of what was to come.

From a tour the cathedral, it led us to buying a ticket to go up the tower and see the world from the roof of the cathedral. For two adults and two children it cost us around £15 to go up. To get to the top you have two trips in a lift and climb a flight of stairs in the bell tower. The bell tower is quite open to see and it's not one for people who aren't great with heights as my wife found out, but if you are brave enough to get past the bell tower as she was you are rewarded with stunning views of the city from the roof. We even found a lady living in a little shed up there to help people out and give snippets of information.

From the top the views are spectacular, seeing the city from a unique perspective but also further afield. We were staying in Birkenhead and even managed to pick out our hotel from the top. Absolutely stunning views and we were lucky to have a clear day to see them. Back down the staircase and the two lifts and we were at the bottom again.

A brilliant experience and worth every penny. A must for anyone touring the city, don't be put off by the walk up a steep hill to get to it, it's worth it when you get there.
