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.

The vast Liver Building has a touch of New York about it and it dominates the view. Right next to the terminal, for the ferry cross the Mersey. Definitely worth a look, especially if you're in the nearby Albert Dock.

The building is very impressive, however the big issue i have is that the birds on top look nothing like a liver or any other internal organ.

This really is a truly iconic building on the banks of The Mersey. With its Liverbirds sat proudly on the top it is a beautiful building & one that most visitors no doubt capture in a "Kodak Moment" It is a shame that you can't go inside. Who knows perhaps that will change as looking at other comments there are... More
