Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King Liverpool

This unusual and distinctive building can be found a little outside the city center. One of the two stunning cathedrals in the city, the 'Catholic Cathedral' is the result of Sir Frederick Gibberd's award-winning contemporary design of the 1960s. Bearing spectacular architectural nuances, the structure of this cathedral is circular and almost rocket-like in appearance. During the day, the interior mesmerizes with a vivid display of light radiating through magnificent colored glass panels. Marble floors open up to decadent chapels, while the altar bears a bronze crucifix, and craved paneling, a decorative organ and quaint statues also adorn the recesses of this cathedral. The cathedral is also home to an ancient, brick-built crypt which hosts university examinations and the Liverpool Beer Festival. An impressive, suspended metal installation symbolizing the Crown of Thorns hangs above the high altar. Its facade fashioned out of Portland stone, the cathedral looks like a floodlit, funnel-shaped canopy come night. An on-site bookshop and informative guides are also available.

St George's Hall

Described as one of the finest Greco-Roman building in Europe, this magnificent landmark is an example of the outstanding architecture within the city. Built in the 1840s, this Grade I listed building was originally built as a concert hall and two courts. The original architect Harvey Lonsdale Elmes died of consumption before the building was complete and his successor, Charles Robert Cockerell, altered the design so that the interior resembled a Roman public bath. St George's Hall is famed for the Minton-tiled floor, the Willis Organ, vaulted ceiling, as well as fine sculptures and plaster work. The courts and the concert room are often seen in film and television productions. High profile concerts are a regular affair and the hall has an excellent calendar of events throughout the year. The Heritage Centre has a wonderful array of facilities for visitors and also conducts guided tours of the hall.

Walker Art Gallery

This grand Victorian building of the Walker Art Gallery stands next to the World Museum Liverpool. Built in 1877 and extended in the 1930s, it features a superb collection of paintings, sculpture and fine arts from the 14th-20th Century. The gallery stages regular exhibitions, events, tours and family activities. The works on display include Rembrandt, Monet, Matisse and world famous collections by William Frederick Yeames and Rossetti. The spacious cafe offers light refreshments in relaxing surroundings.

Eric's Live

After being closed for nearly 30 years, the legendary Eric's re-opened its doors in September 2011 with a grand performance by legendary band Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark. In the past, the likes of The Stranglers, U2, Police, Jam and Elvis Costello have performed here. Now, this venue is fast regaining its popularity and dominating the local music scene once again. The new space is completely refurbished with air-conditioners and modern dressing rooms equipped with showers for the performing band/artist. For gigs and technical specifications, check website or call ahead.

Royal Albert Dock

Originally built as a thriving dock complex somewhere between 1841 to 1847 by renowned Liverpool-based civil engineer Jesse Hartley, the Albert Dock was the first structure of its kind to be built of a composition of cast iron, stone, and brick. In its distinguished service to the public, the dock functioned as a base for the British Atlantic Fleet during World War II, when it suffered significant damages as part of the devastating May Blitz of 1941. Since being restored as a major tourist hotspot, Albert Dock manages to draw over five million visitors every year. A treasured world heritage site, it offers a fascinating blend of history, culture, food, and shopping. In addition to the many shops and craft, carts present here, there are numerous attractions including The Beatles Story Museum, Tate Gallery, Merseyside Maritime Museum, and the Museum of Liverpool.
