it stands on a junction and is quite imposing. Worth a visit as it is a most respectful memorial to the dead of the two world wars.

It is great to see so much going on in this church that stands as it’s own memorial to the two world wars. There was a fascinating exhibition to those that lost their lives in the Blitz during WW II. Poignant and moving.

What a beautifully designed church which has been left as it was bombed in the 2nd world war by an incendiary bomb. Don't really know why they did not rebuild it as it is a beautifully designed church.

I’d heard about the Bombed Out Church and imagined total ruins. A few brick walls left here and there. Visiting Liverpool many times, I cannot believe I have never visited before. This time was not intentional, we walked past on our way somewhere else and...More

The gardens are always open so you can look around the outside. Not sure if the church itself will be open. Only down the hill from the two catherdrals and also the Chinese Arch so you could always go there also. Enjoy your... More
