St George's Hall

St George's Hall is widely regarded as one of the finest neo-classical buildings in the world and is a Grade I listed building.

St George's Hall stands 169ft long and 74ft wide with a tunnel vaulted ceiling - the largest of its kind in Europe. The ceiling is supported on massive red granite columns, with figures portraying qualities Victorian Liverpool aspired to - art, science, fortitude and justice.

Behind the gold leaf and porticoes, the Hall has one of the greatest brick arches in the world and houses a priceless mosaic floor of 30,000 tiles. When the unique Minton tiled floor was uncovered to mark the Hall's centenary in 1954, more than 100,000 people queued to see it.

The Hall is also home to a concert organ complete with 7,000 pipes, second only in size to the organ in the Albert Hall.
