Tour of Liverpool Cathedrals with the National Churches Trust
Explore Liverpool’s stunning Anglican and Catholic Cathedrals, led by historian and author Matthew Byrne
About this Event

Liverpool Cathedral is remarkable for its cavernous size and wonderful art collection, with works dating from the fifteenth century to the modern day. Affectionately known as "Paddy's Wigwam", Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral was redesigned four times before the unique conical structure we know today was completed. Together, Liverpool’s Anglican and Catholic cathedrals represent the remarkable development of twentieth-century ecclesiastical design.

Tour led by Matthew Byrne

We are delighted that historian Dr Matthew Byrne will be guiding us through Liverpool's cathedrals. He has written several books for the National Churches Trust, most recently The Treasures of English Churches, which celebrates some of the greatest art, architecture and furnishings to be found in England's churches. Copies of this beautiful book are available to buy, with all proceeds going to our work supporting UK churches.
