Liverpool is a city in the North West of England, located on the north side of the Mersey Estuary. The city is the administrative center of the county of Merseyside.

The Anglican Cathedral, by Giles Gilbert Scott, was built of red sandstone in the neo-Gothic style between 1902 and 1978 and is the largest on the Island.
Its tower is 110m high and overlooks the town and surrounding countryside. The Catholic Municipal Cathedral was completed in 1967 and was the work of Sir Edwin Lutyens and is thought to be larger than St. Paul’s. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. It has a modern appearance with a circular shape. The locals refer to this church as “Paddy’s Lodge” and “Mercy’s Chimney.”
The three buildings in the harbor precinct in Liverpool are imposing – the Harbour Building, built in 1907; the Cunard Steamship Building – in the style of an Italian palace, built in 1913, the Lever Building, built as the Royal Lever Society building, topped with a copper sculpture of the Lever Bird, which is the symbol of the town.
A city tour must pass through Liverpool Central Station “Lime Street.” At the time of its construction in 1867, this building was the largest in the world.
Near Liverpool is situated another major city – Manchester.
Liverpool is also the birthplace of one of the most influential rock bands in music history, The Beatles. In 2008, the city was named the European Capital of Culture.
