Liverpool Cathedral, situated on St. James' Mount is the Church of England Cathedral of the Diocese of Liverpool. Although the concept for the design and building of the Cathedral began at the start of the 20th Century, it was not finally completed until 1978 when Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the 2nd attended a ceremony of thanksgiving and dedication. The work on the Cathedral had been hampered by disputes over design and two World wars causing lack of manpower and materials. The Cathedral actually received bomb damage during World War 2.
The Cathedral is accessible by car, bus and train. Some of the City bus tours include the Cathedral on their route.
By train and tube: the cathedral is about a thirty minute walk from both Lime Street and Central railway stations. If you don't fancy the walk then take a bus from Liverpool One bus station.
By bus: Bus numbers 82 (Duncan St) and 86 (Eregton St) stop near the Cathedral.
By car: Head for the City centre and signs for Universities and Cathedrals. Then join Upper Duke Street where there is an entrance to the Cathedral car park. Postcode for satnavs is L1 7AZ.
International: The Liverpool John Lennon Airport is 7 miles from the city centre. It is not well-served by public transport. Unusually for a large city, there is no train service but you can take the Airlink 500 bus into the city centre which takes about 25 minutes.
The Cathedral has a very spacious car park in Upper Duke Street with facilities for blue badge holders. There is a pay on exit system with the first half hour free.
Access for people with special needs
There are fantastic facilities here for people with special needs. It seems that almost every situation has been catered for from lift access and widened doors and even wheelchair loan if required. All the staff is disability awareness trained.
