Historic Liverpool

The World Heritage Site stretches along the waterfront from The Royal Albert Dock through the Pier Head and up to Stanley Dock, running through the historic commercial districts and the RopeWalks area, along to the cultural quarter around William Brown Street. The famous port and the city’s stunning architecture allow Liverpool to stand proudly alongside other historic cities, such as Venice and Vienna.

A ‘must see’ on any visit to Liverpool is Britain’s biggest Cathedral: awesome architecture including the world’s highest Gothic arches, astonishing views from the top of the Tower (the highest point in Liverpool), the world’s highest and heaviest peal of bells, sublime music, award-winning shop – and always something going on to experience!

Boasting the largest collection of Grade I listed buildings in Britain, The Royal Albert Dock is the perfect place to delve into the city’s history. Don’t forget to pop into the Visitor Centre to discover more about Liverpool’s heritage.

Liverpool’s Three Graces – The Royal Liver Building, The Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool Building – are the focal point of the city’s world famous skyline. Enduring symbols of Liverpool’s international prestige and commercial prowess, these are a must-see for anyone visiting the city.

A Grade I listed, 300-year-old building in the heart of Liverpool, the Bluecoat offers a year-round programme of visual art, literature, music, dance and live art.

Perfectly positioned of Liverpool’s stunning waterfront, just 15 minutes’ stroll from Echo Arena, the World Museum uses exhibits and activities you can get involved in to reveal the secrets of the Earth’s history.
