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.

An iconic building most tourists make for, it stands majestic and is widely photographed. There are plenty of places to eat and drink near by and a great land mark in getting your bearings.

A must see in Liverpool for tourists it's on all the post cards of Liverpool. The Liver birds on the top of the building and its iconic status by the side of the river Mersey.

Beautiful architecture and home to the fabled Liver birds on its domes. The famous statue of the four Beatles is on the entrance path leading to the riverside walk almost opposite. Try to see it in both daylight and on an evening when a lot...More

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.
