St George's Hall, Liverpool, the finest neo-classical building in Europe designed by Harvey Lonsdale Elmes, building commenced in 1842, opening in September 1854. With its splendid chandeliers and gilded plasterwork is one of the best assembly halls in Britain. Overlooking Lime Street and St.Johns Lane and Gardens.

Completed in 1854, St George's Hall represents the prosperity in Liverpool in the 19th century. A regular visitor to the hall was Charles Dickens who held many of his readings in the 'Small Concert Hall'. The interior is dominated by the main hall 169 feet long with a floor of Minton tiles which is normally protected from the feet of the day to day users, but opened to viewing usually once a year.

St George's Hall is unique in terms of its architecture, function and history.
