Liverpool has a breathtaking group of architectural attractions, and they are right next to each other, just opposite Lime Street Station.
I’m talking about St George’s Hall, the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool Central Library and the whole row of magnificent buildings on either side. In my opinion they are on a par with London in their grandiose qualities. On the south side of St George’s Hall we have St John’s Gardens, named after the church that once stood here, and on the north side, St George’s Plateau, with its statues. My Liverpool photo walk begins on the steps of St George’s Hall and most of the time I stay in this area, as there are so many things to see and photograph.
On rainy days there are convenient indoor attractions, including the Walker Art Gallery with its magnificent statue hall, the Central Library, a mixture of classic and space age, and in the base of St George’s Hall, the visitors centre route through the building, where you can view prison cells and stand in the former court room and look down on the main hall from the balcony.
Few cities have so many attractions so close together and within a few steps of the main station! Ideal for a flying visit!
