The Anglican Cathedral is much more traditional in style than the Catholic one, but is in fact not that much older.

The decision to build a cathedral was made in 1901 and after an open competition a design by Giles Gilbert Scott was chosen. The first stage of building (the Lady Chapel) was completed in 1910 but the cathedral was not finally completed until 1978.

It claims a number of records including:

The largest cathedral in the UK
The highest and heaviest peal of bells in the world
The highest and widest Gothic arches in the world

The cathedral is open daily from 8.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.

On the northern side is a former quarry which became first the cemetery and is now a park.

Address: Upper Duke Street, Liverpool
Directions: From the city centre walk up Mount Pleasant and right onto Hope Street - it's the large cathedral-shaped building you will see.
