Liverpool Cathedral is a world class cathedral which stands as an icon for the city. Britain’s largest cathedral is Sir Giles Gilbert Scott’s masterpiece boasting many record-breaking features including: the world’s highest and widest Gothic arches, the highest and heaviest peal of bells and an organ with 10,268 pipes. 

Built by the people, for the people, for the Glory of God, Liverpool Cathedral is a vibrant church with a community life of daily prayer and an award winning visitor attraction (winner of Large Visitor Attraction of the Year 2018 for Liverpool City Region).
