When I first approached the imposing façade of Liverpool Cathedral, I couldn’t help but think that it looked more like a factory than a place of worship; the cavernous yet beautiful sandstone interiors and modern artwork confirmed its unusualness. Taking a whopping 75 years to construct, it’s possibly the coolest church I’ve ever been to.
Liverpool Cathedral is just one of the many examples of how this northern city has managed to turn something classic and traditional into something cutting-edge and contemporary. This eclectic merging of old with new is what makes Liverpool such a great city break destination.
Thanks to massive amounts of urban regeneration, a burgeoning arts scene and a healthy scattering of hip cafés, Liverpool has become a real hotspot for the 21st century traveler.
