Liverpool has a considerable range of architecture, from 16th century Tudor buildings to modern-day contemporary. There are over 2,500 listed buildings in Liverpool, of which 27 are Grade I listed and 85 are Grade II listed. Liverpool also has a greater number of public sculptures than any other location in the United Kingdom aside from Westminster and more Georgian houses than the city of Bath. The Albert Dock contains the UK’s largest collection of Grade I listed buildings as well as being the most visited multi-use attraction outside London. The Albert Dock houses restaurants, bars, shops, two hotels as well as the Merseyside Maritime Museum, International Slavery Museum, Tate Liverpool and The Beatles Story. Stanley Dock, is home to the Stanley Dock Tobacco Warehouse, which today stands as the world’s largest brick-work building.

The Pier Head is famous for the Royal Liver Building, the Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool Building. Built in a variety of architectural styles, they are recognised as being the symbol of Maritime Liverpool, and are regarded by many as contributing to one of the most impressive waterfronts in the world. Victoria Street like many streets in the city centre is lined with dozens of listed buildings. The commercial district is on the Castle Street, Dale Street and Old Hall Street areas of the city, and many of the area’s roads still following their original medieval layout.

The oldest building in the area is the Grade I listed Liverpool Town Hall, which dates from 1754. Often regarded as the city’s finest piece of Georgian architecture, the building is noted as one of the most extravagantly decorated civic buildings anywhere in Britain. The area around William Brown Street is known as the city’s ‘Cultural Quarter’, owing to the presence of numerous civic buildings, including the William Brown Library, Walker Art Gallery, Picton Reading Rooms and World Museum Liverpool. St George’s Hall is widely regarded as the best example of a neo-classical building anywhere in Europe.

William Brown Street is also home to numerous public monuments and sculptures, including Wellington’s Column and the Steble Fountain. Speke Hall is a Tudor manor house located in the south of the city, which was completed in 1598, and is one of the few remaining timber framed Tudor houses left in the north of England and is famed for its Victorian style interior.

The oldest building within the city centre is the Bluecoat Chambers which was originally the home of the Bluecoat School. It is now a centre for arts in Liverpool. Liverpool Cathedral is regarded as one of the greatest buildings of the twentieth century and is one of the largest church buildings in the world. The Anglican Cathedral is the largest Cathedral in Britain and the fifth largest in the world. Designed and built in Gothic style, it is regarded as one of the greatest buildings to have been constructed during the 20th century.

The English Heritage National Register of Historic Parks describes Merseyside’s Victorian Parks as the most important in the country.
