"The Three Graces of Liverpool" Three Graces Tip by slothtraveller
Three Graces, Liverpool: 8 reviews and 20 photos
Lining the waterfront at Pier Head are three splendid Georgian and Edwardian style buildings known as the Three Graces. They are the Cunard Building, the Port of Liverpool Building and the most well-known of all, the Royal Liver Building.
The Royal Liver is home to Royal Liver Assurance and was constructed between 1908-1911. There are two clock towers. Perched on top of the towers are the two Liver Birds, designed by Carl Bernard Bartels. Locals with a sense of humour will tell you that if a virgin walks along Pier Head, the birds wings will start to flap!
You can get a great view of these three buildings from the Museum of Liverpool opposite.
Address: Liverpool waterfront (Pier Head)
