At the heart of Liverpool's famous, iconic and always developing waterfront. Visually, nothing defines the city more than the Royal Liver and accompanying Cunard and Port of Liverpool buildings by Pier Head. Known collectively as the "Three Graces" and loosely based on the skyline of early 20th century Chicago, the interiors are sadly not open to the public.

This building stands out among the Liverpool skypine. The 2 Liver birds are very distinctive perched on top. Very impressive looking building and a big part of Liverpool's history.

Steel frame, 1st in uk, clad in concrete and Portland stone. Topped by clocks, turrets and the liverbirds. Part of the iconic three graces at pierhead. One of the things I always associate with Liverpool.

It is a stunning building to see from outside, the clock faces are particularly interesting as they're bigger than Big Ben's faces, but you can't see inside. So it's good to see if you're in the area with the museums and so on in the...More

As far as I am aware the Royal Liver building is not open to the public for tours but only to people who have business to do in the building itself.
