I have debated long and hard which building to choose in Liverpool.  The Liver building, the Cunard building, The Albert Dock or the Anglican Cathedral but I eventually decided on the Cathedral (full name Cathedral Church of Christ in Liverpool).  The young Giles Gilbert Scott, who has already got one building in my seven – Battersea Power Station, won a competition for its design when he was only 22 and had no real experience of building design.  Long a butt of comedians jokes on Merseyside for not being completed it was eventually finished in 1978 18 years after Scott’s death.


It had the largest pipe organ in the country until the Royal Albert Hall’s organ was reconstructed.  It is free to enter but there is a recommended subscription of £3.  A fantastic soaring ceiling will make you feel at one with the world even if you have no religious beliefs.
