There's no doubt that Liverpool is a pretty city. There's incredible buildings, views and even beaches. There's certain places that we see daily, but never actually step inside. There many be places that you've heard of and wonder what all the fuss is about. 

After seeing his amazing photography on Instagram, we met up with independent photographer, Adrian Little of AML 360 Images. Adrian let us rifle through his super extensive collection of 360 images and we picked out some of our favourites, that we think you'll love too. 

See more of Adrian's work on his website.


1. St Nicholas' Church Garden 

Ever seen that shot of The Liver Building from under an archway and thought ‘Where on earth is that picture taken from!?’ - This is your answer. A relatively hidden gem, St Nicholas Church gardens offer some enviable views of the Liver Building, surrounded by lush grass and flowers. There’s plenty of benches for a moments rest and Ma Boyles Alehouse is tucked around the corner for those who want to stay a little longer.


2. Port of Liverpool Building 

It makes up one of the famous ‘Three Graces’ that line Liverpool’s iconic waterfront, but it’s probably one of the least known of the three. The former home of the Mersey Docks and Harbour Board Offices, it is now occupied by local businesses.

It  is open for the public to have a look around in the week, but not at the weekends. The dome in the centre of the building is particularly impressive and was actually originally designed for Liverpool’s Anglican Cathedral.


3. Council Chambers

If you’ve ever seen Liverpool Town Hall you’ll know it’s pretty impressive, the fact that is is described as ‘One of the finest surviving 18th-century town halls’ seals the deal for us. Liverpool Town Hall often hosts weddings and private events, but it also hosts council debates. 

Take a look around the Council Chambers room below. 


4. Underground Catacombs

St George’s Hall is one of Liverpool’s most iconic and important buildings. It is incredibly ornate, both inside and out, but have you ever been underneath it? Below St George’s Hall is the catacombs, where lies a darker side to Liverpool’s history. 


5. The Great Hall

If you see only one room in St George’s Hall, make it the Great Hall. If you haven’t been lucky enough to step inside this incredible space, the next best thing is below. Beneath the wooden floor boards, is an intricate minton tile floor that is to be unveiled this August. Find out more about this event here. 


6. Goodness Gracious

The most enviable skyline views in Liverpool City Centre, belong to this place. Goodness Gracious roof terrace is a spot located on the corner of Water Street, overlooking the three Graces. Happy music masks the sounds of traffic rushing past below. 


7. Liverpool Town Hall Staircase

Don’t you wish your staircase looked like this one? A beautiful feature in Liverpool’s Town Hall. 


8. Croxteth Hall

A short trip from the city centre is Croxteth Hall. Tucked away in Croxteth Country Park, the Hall is located on the former estate of the Molyneux Family. It’s one of the finest examples of a working estate with five main attractions surrounded by the 500 acre park, the Historic Hall, Croxteth Home Farm and the Victorian Walled Garden where visitors can explore Liverpool's historic botanical collection.
 


9. Cunard Building

Another of the iconic Three Graces, The Cunard building is the ‘middle grace.’ The building was commissioned to be the new headquarters of the famous cruise line Cunard Steamship Company in 1914. 

Today the Cunard building houses offices, the British Music Experience Museum and the room you can see below is a venue used for Weddings, Christmas Grottos, themed brunches and even music conferences. 
 


10. Town Hall Rear Balcony

Back at the Town Hall, we’re on the balcony. Not the balcony that the Fab Four made so famous, but the balcony that overlooks Exchange flags. Popular with weddings and parties, we think this is probably a favourable place to relax with a glass of fizz. 
 


A bit about Adrian 

My mum and dad got me my first camera at Christmas when I was 13, which I loved and learned so much from. I ended up becoming a professional wedding photographer at the age of 19, then started landscape and architectural photography.

About 15 years ago, I tried to get into virtual reality 360 photography but the process was very complex as the UK market was not ready for it. I got back into normal photography, then in June 2016, Facebook set up a way to post 360 images without special software and it sparked my interest in virtual reality again.
 
Find out more about Adrian and 360 imagery soon, in our new blog.
