Come and enjoy unrivalled panoramic views from 500ft above sea level - the only open-air 360˚ rooftop view of Liverpool and beyond.

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).

Please note

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.
