RIBA Walking Tours - Sculpture, Culture & Civic Pride
The first view that greets visitors to the city from Lime Street Station is St George’s Hall, one of the finest examples of Neoclassical architecture in the world. The Plateau in front of the hall, with its monuments and memorials, provides the city of Liverpool with an area for congregation in good times and in bad. It is an important meeting place in the city for political demonstrations, Remembrance Day services and a place for the city to come together and support one another. This area is home to many of Liverpool’s fine examples of classic architecture and sculpture, warranting its status as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Meeting: St. George’s Hall Heritage Centre Café
End point: St. John’s Gardens
Tour time: 2 hours approx.
