Liverpool Cathedral, also known as AnglicanCathedral. It is the largest church in the United Kingdom, also known as the Catherdral Church of Chris in Liverpool. It is also the fifth largest cathedral in the world, and its architectural style blends traditional Gothic and modern monumental styles. The design of the single tower was an innovation at the time. The tower was 101 meters high and built the world's third largest clock. The exterior is not very eye-catching, but the interior space is extremely high and ethereal. And you can enter for free and listen to the hymns of the choir.
It is worth mentioning that this magnificent and solemn religious building is from the hands of a 22-year-old youth. In 1902, the 22-year-old Giles Gilbert Scott selected the design competition at Liverpool Cathedral, which was a bit controversial, but Scott's mastery of Gothic style and professional family background (George Gilbert Scott Junior) Sir and grandfather Sir George Gilbert Scott are both very famous architects in British history. Sir Grandpa Scott designed London's St. Pancras Station. The Albert Memorial, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the chapel at St. John's College of Cambridge, the main building of the University of Glasgow, etc., and other British landmarks involved in the design are numerous. Let the project run aground. In 1904 King Edward laid the cornerstone and the church began construction. In 1924, the first part of the Church and the East Hall were completed. In 1941, the second stage tower was initially completed and put into use. In World War II, the church miraculously survived the death. However, due to the downturn in the national economy and the impact of the world war, it was not until 1978, after a full 76 years, the main part of the church was officially completed, and Elizabeth II attended the completion ceremony. Unfortunately, Scott died in 1960. He didn't wait until the day when his work was perfectly presented, but Scott not only left this beautiful church, but London's iconic red telephone booth was also from his hand.
