Liverpool: Commercial Quarter - Dale Street - Cultural Quarter

Starting at Liverpool Town Hall (covered in Walk 2062: Liverpool Pierhead) we go north into the business district where some of the most spectacular new buildings have appeared, then up to St George's Plateau. This has been described as ' ...the greatest classical monument of the nineteenth century, the finest work of architecture in the north of England' (Quentin Hughes, Seaport). From there we go further inland, gaining height from which to look back over the city from the deck of the Metropolitan cathedral to the splendid architecture, both Victorian and modern, of the university district - not the endless, drab halls of residence blighting Liverpool just as anywhere - rather the inspiring architecture of the campus itself.
