The Bell Chamber
The world’s highest and heaviest peal of bells - Come along and see Great George and friends.
(To keep you safe, it is not possible to allow visitors into the Tower when our bells are being rung.)
The Elizabeth Hoare Embroidery Gallery
We are sorry to say, our exquisite collection of Victorian and Edwardian ecclesiastical embroidery is not open to visitors at the moment.
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.

How many people does it take to change a light bulb?
Well, in our case – more than one! The huge chains used to lower the great central chandeliers (965 kg/1 9cwt each) to the Cathedral floor (over 52 m/170 ft) can be seen just before you enter the second lift - just to change the bulbs! It takes a team of at least 5 people and a whole day to carry out this skilful operation.
The journey from the 2nd stage lift brings you to the bell tower itself from where you begin ascending 108 steps. This chamber houses the highest (67 m/219 ft) and heaviest (31.5 tonnes/31 tons) ringing peal of church bells in the world.
The main roof section (101 m/ 300 ft) above ground floor level and over 150 m(500 ft) above sea level offers panoramic views across the city as it spreads like a giant jigsaw of buildings, roads, parks and other landmarks.
- Northwards you may just see Blackpool Tower approx 80km (50 miles) away
- Westward, the beauty of the Welsh hills, whilst eastward the Pennines rise against the city outline
- South-eastwards, see the circular Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King, 800m (half a mile) away
- Southwards, follow the river line to the Runcorn Bridge, the local gateway to the county of Cheshire
- As you descend from your trip, drop in to the Elizabeth Hoare Embroidery Gallery (entrance fee included in the Tower Experience ticket price)
