Education at Liverpool Cathedral

Each visit is an active learning experience designed to encourage pupils to ask questions.

We hope to provide experiences and memories that will last beyond the length of their visit. We are always happy to adapt and develop our workshops to meet your pupils’ particular needs. We want to make teachers happy too! So we will do everything we can to make sure that your visit runs smoothly.
