There’s the soaring Gothic Revival Liverpool Cathedral, the biggest Anglican Cathedral in the UK

Liverpool’s noted architecture also includes the stunning St George’s Hall, described by Prince Charles as the finest example of neo-classical architecture in the country, where you can explore the great hall, fascinating criminal court and judges’ chambers.

Information from UNESCO`s website: Six areas in the historic centre and docklands of the maritime mercantile City of Liverpool bear witness to the development of one of the world’s major trading centres in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Liverpool played an important role in the growth of the British Empire and became the major port for the mass movement of people, e.g. slaves and emigrants from northern Europe to America.

Liverpool was a pioneer in the development of modern dock technology, transport systems and port management. The listed sites feature a great number of significant commercial, civic and public buildings, including St George’s Plateau.
