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.

We admired this fantastic, iconic building from the Pier Head and, with the help of a telephoto lens, examined the famous Liver Birds. This is how Liverpool is known throughout the world and building can be seen from many parts of the city.

Had a business dinner here. It's a fabulous building but the 'venue' floor, which is accessible via a stair case which could be in an office block, has zero character - bland white walls. Wasn't really big enough for our group and the staff struggled to serve. I preregistered as a veggie but they ran out of veggie food as... More

This building is the oldest, tallest buiilding of its time. The second floor has gorgeous ceilings which are by appointment only. The entrance to the building is gaudy and dated which is really odd. This is a business building and not for tourists.

It is located at the Pier Head along with the Cunard and the Port of Liverpool Building. The Royal Liver Building is one of the most recognisable landmarks in Liverpool and is home to two Liver Birds that watch over the city and the sea. Legend has it that were these two birds to fly away, then the city would... More

Easy to take in on any walking tour of downtown Liverpool. Quite impressive and worth a photo of the Liver Birds at the top.

Great example of a monumental building, especially one done in the art deco style.As the building is occupied by business, it's not really possible to enter.

The place where you can meet the Fab Four. Since the statues of the Beatles where installed on Liverpool's waterfront, this iconic building and the recently placed sculptures sets "You are in Liverpool" feeling.
