A Safe Visit

We want your visit to Liverpool Cathedral to be a safe and enjoyable experience, so we have some guidance in place about how we'll be keeping everyone safe. You can find out more here.

 

Visiting times for Liverpool Cathedral

You don't need to book to visit Liverpool Cathedral, and you can find our usual opening hours below. 

On Thursday 14 October at 11:00 am, the Cathedral will be holding the funeral of Liverpool FC legend, Roger Hunt MBE. Members of the public are welcome to attend the funeral up to our building's capacity. 

We are closing the Cathedral to visitors in the morning and reopen in the early afternoon. We anticipate this will be no later than 1:00 pm. Our Cathedral Shop will open when the Cathedral reopens and remain open for the rest of the day. Our Welsford Bistro will be shut all day on Thursday. Our car park will be closed to the public all day Thursday.

**We’ve had to close the Tower Experience until Saturday 16 October 2021, at the earliest.

Our phone engineers are putting in new phone lines for the Cathedral. This has disturbed the service at the top of our Tower and in our lifts. We’re only able to allow visitors to our Tower Experience if this line is operational.

We’re really sorry if you’re disappointed you can’t see the views from the top of our Tower but we’re sure you'll appreciate that making sure we keep you and our staff safe is really important.

Once we know the phone line is working, we’ll reopen the Tower and update this web page. Thank you for your understanding.
