Spot all of Liverpool’s great landmarks as you take in a breathtaking 360˚ view from the rooftop of the highest Cathedral in the UK - 152m (500ft) above sea level, two lifts and 108 stairs and on a good clear day you will see the Blackpool Tower! The massive Vestey Tower, named after its benefactors the Vestey family, has a floor to top height of 101m (331ft).

Great Space Film
Let stonemason John show you how our cathedral was built and marvel at a stunning fly through of the Great Space in this extraordinary ten minute film.

For Health & Safety reasons it is not possible to allow the public into the Tower whenever the bells are being rung.

If you have asthma, other chest conditions, heart problems, or are pregnant, please think carefully before deciding whether to climb such a large number of stairs. There are NO external views of the city available at the intermediary levels.
Can't get to the top, or just curious what's out there?
Get an excellent taste of the views on offer before you ascend to the top by watching the large TV screen at the entrance to the tower on the Ground Floor, or, if you cannot negotiate lifts or stairs then feel free to browse the views using our unique camera facility.
You can sweep around to view the River with its famous landmark waterfront of the 'Three Graces', including the Royal Liver Building and a little further along the Docklands, the Albert Dock as well as out across the city itself catching many of its amazing buildings and in particular our sister cathedral, the Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King.
