Join our knowledgeable guides on an incredible journey through the history and architecture of one of Liverpool’s most iconic buildings and the finest neo classical building in the world.
You will experience the extremes of Liverpool life with a visit to the prison cells, the imposing court rooms and the splendour of the biggest classical reception room in the UK: the Great Hall, the pinnacle of Liverpool’s civic pride. Illuminated by huge light fittings said to be the biggest ever made, you will also see fine marble statues of local notables that line the walls and the Great Willis organ, the third largest of its kind in the UK.
Then you will experience the classical elegance of the golden Concert Room with its beautiful crystal chandelier and described by Charles Dickens as the ‘most perfect Hall in the world’.
