      Liverpool Sightseeing Drive and Cathedral Visits

      Liverpool, England
      From (USD) $619 Per Person (Minimum 8)
      Highlights
      • Motorcoach tour: Liverpool has more than 100 of England's most historic buildings and places, including the Three Graces, Town Hall, Cavern Quarter, and Penny Lane.
      • Metropolitan Cathedral: This sensational modern landmark, known affectionately as "Paddy's Wigwam", is like no other house of worship you've seen. On this planet.  
      • Anglican Cathedral: Fifth largest in the world, and towering 500 feet above the Mersey, this Gothic masterpiece took 74 years to build and was worth the wait.    
      About this Liverpool tour

      We all agree London is Britain's "first city." But the whole second city question gets tricky. Depending on who you ask, it could be Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds, or several others. But in the 19th century, it was surely Liverpool. And this town's got the buildings to prove it.

      Get used to hearing "Europe's biggest," "world's finest," and "Britain's oldest" as we encounter a seemingly endless supply of landmarks, starting with the monumental Royal Liver Building, topped with a giant pair of mythical Liver Birds the city was named for. Flanked by its great-looking sister buildings, these "Three Graces" at the harbor form the signature Liverpool skyline image.

      That skyline also includes two cathedrals that rise above all – one classically Gothic, the other decidedly modern. The Anglican Cathedral, Britain's largest church, seems to have been here forever but was only completed in 1978. Inside are the highest arches, largest organ, and heaviest bells in the land. The spacy wigwam-shaped Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral, England's largest Catholic venue, is pure modernism – and sports a 2,000-ton stained glass lantern towering above its central altar.

      We'll see Town Hall, a magnificent gift from the Georgian era. The elegant Walker Art Gallery. Britain's oldest Chinatown. St. George's Hall, one of the world's finest Neo-Classical buildings. Mathew Street and its Cavern Club, where the Beatles made history. Even the road sign they immortalized in Penny Lane.

      At the restored 1846 Albert Dock, once gateway to the New World, you can head out on foot for independent exploring or shopping. From here it's an easy walk back to where we started.

      A chapter long closed, but never forgotten

      Liverpool's ships dominated the transatlantic slave trade for decades, transporting some 1.5 million captive Africans to America. Nearly every merchant was involved in the infamous Triangular Trade: English goods shipped to Africa and exchanged for innocent people; a perilous crossing to the Americas, where those who survived were sold; then a return to home port, loaded with the fruits of slave labor. The International Slavery Museum at Albert Dock tells the story bravely and openly.
