Built between 1904 and 1978 and designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott, Liverpool Cathedral is the largest in the UK and the fifth largest in the world. This fascinating and unique building is a historic landmark famously described by Sir John Betjeman as “one of the greatest buildings in the world”. The cathedral boasts its magnificent gothic arches – the highest and widest in the world – with the summit of the Tower reaching 331 feet (101m). It currently has the largest pipe organ in the UK with 10,268 pipes.
The design of the cathedral was a blind competition, won by the 21 year old. Prior to this, Sir Scott had also designed the Battersea Power Station, Cambridge University Library and the iconic red telephone box.
A guided tour of Liverpool’s Cathedrals will be running on Thursday 30 August at 10:00. Further information and how to book are detailed here.
