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.

This is the first building you see when your ship arrives at the cruise port. One of the famous Three Graces I think it stands out more than the other two. On top of the two towers of the building are statues of Liver Birds...More

Once a year on the heritage open days the Liver Building is opened to the public. It is very difficult to get tickets so make sure you are sitting at your computer at the time bookings open. We managed to get returns and were rewarded...More

Over the UK Heritage Days you are allowed access all areas inside and outside this stunning building. From the marble lobby to the african walnut walled boardroom but the best bit by far is access to the roof and a climb up the "chicken stairway"...More

Just by the Mersey river walk is this beautiful building. Well worth exploring as well as photographing. It is truly a landmark.

A magnificent building on the waterfront - beautiful to look at and, having learned more of the history of its owner, an interesting aspect of the slave trade to be considered too. Stayed at a hotel overlooking this building - amazing by night.

Arguably the most famous and best recognised building in Liverpool. Forms part of three buildings known as the "three sisters', of which the Royal Liver building (RLB) is the most impressive. The "three sisters" face the River Mersey and form part of the newly developed...More

One of the most viewed well known land mark of liverpool. Well worth a look, especially to see the liver birds on the top of the building. The myth states that if the birds flew away the building would collapse. What a myth

As far as I am aware the Royal Liver building is not open to the public for tours but only to people who have business to do in the building itself.
