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.

World Museum Liverpool

Originally opened in 1851 on land donated by shipping magnate and local MP William Brown, this imposing building is Liverpool's largest museum and is situated very close to the St. George Hall. Take a journey through time and view the passing of ages from prehistoric man to live in the space age. The botanical and zoological collections in the museum have grown manifold over the years. The place combines exhibits of neo-classical history with the pre-historic days of mankind. The award-winning Natural History Center depicts scenes from rain forests and savannas to the Arctic. Tours and exciting activities for kids are available.

The Cavern Club

Undoubtedly, one of the most famous clubs in the world, this was the birthplace of a revolution that changed the music world forever. It was from this club the 'Fab Four' rose to heights. The original club closed down in 1973 to make way for an underground rail link, moving to its present site in 1976. The Cavern Club has been witness to almost three hundred performances by The Beatles, and it was here that Sir Paul McCartney played his last gig of the 20th Century. In addition to the main club, the venue features the Cavern Live Lounge, a space for private parties and one-off performances, as well as the Cavern Pub, a relaxed watering hole with regular local live music. In addition, to live gigs, the club also caters to a number of tastes including retro, dance and party.

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.

Liverpool Cathedral

Towering over the verdant expanses of St Jame's Mount is one of Britain's largest Anglican Cathedral which boasts sharp arches and one of the world's heaviest-sounding bells, with the magnificent bell tower enhancing the city's skyline. An incredible tribute to Christ's epochal resurrection, the Liverpool Cathedral bears a spectacular Gothic visage fashioned out of sandstone. Its interiors too, with their strikingly-designed vaults looking over an impressive nave and walls embedded with elongated, vibrant stained glass windows, are a sight to behold. Along with being a looming canopy of magnificence, the cathedral's tower is much loved for its ability to afford sweeping, panoramic views of the city, and also as far across as Merseyside on a clear day. A work of exemplary design by Giles Gilbert Scott, the majestic Liverpool Cathedral is touted to be one of the world's largest cathedrals. Above the sprawling premise of the cathedral's floor is the well-lit Elizabeth Hoare gallery, a fine repository of eclectic and regal Victorian and Edwardian embroidery works belonging to the priests and the clergies. In addition to traditional services, the cathedral also hosts an array of concerts, exhibitions, recitals, gala dinners, and graduation ceremonies.

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.

Tate Liverpool

Liverpool's Tate Gallery is part of the world-renowned family of stellar galleries such as the Tate Britain, Tate Modern in London and the lesser-known St Ives Tate. Situated at the Albert Dock, the gallery boasts of the city's largest contemporary art collection, with many temporary exhibitions aiming to challenge aspects of social or personal thought. The building itself is well planned and subtle enough to disappear behind the artwork on display, yet still provides a pleasant atmosphere in which to spend a contemplative afternoon. There is a well-stocked gift shop on the ground floor and the cafe provides excellent food.

Anfield

One of the most iconic arenas in the world of European football, Anfield has long been the proud game territory of English League team Liverpool F.C. The stadium's first association was with another club, Everton F.C, which lasted for seven years between 1884 and 1891. Followed by an internal dispute, the club relocated to Goodison Park, thus igniting a fierce rivalry between Evertonians and Scousers. Equipped with a splendid GrassMaster turf, this legendary stadium really comes to life during cup ties and Champions League knock-out stages, when the whole place erupts in passionate club chants and vibrant fireworks. Of the four stands it houses, Anfield's Spion Kop is perhaps the most well-known, and seats some of the most avid fans of the club.

Sefton Park

Established in 1872, Sefton Park is the city's largest and most popular park. The Victorian Palm House, a renowned landmark within the park, came close to collapse in the 1980s but was saved by a public appeal and underwent a huge refurbishment program due to a grant from the National Lottery. The park includes many beautiful statues, and although many of the original works are now in storage for safekeeping, you can still see a number of them around the park. Boasting a lake, numerous football pitches, a cricket club and a birdhouse, the park also features a cafe in the central area. Admission is free.
