About

Celebrate. Experience. Discover.

The Grade I listed St George’s Hall sits within the heart of Liverpool in more ways than one; it is a place of congregation and celebration, offering a central location and a true sense of the city amidst incomparable surroundings.

Situated opposite Lime Street Station as part of St George’s Quarter, you’ll find one of the finest examples of neoclassical architecture in the world.

This magnificent structure stands at 169ft long and 74ft wide with a tunnel vaulted ceiling – the largest of its kind in the whole of Europe. Established in 1854 as a grand hub for music festivals and the Civil and Crown courts, St George’s Hall has been at the very epicentre of Liverpool life ever since.

After a £23m refurbishment, HRH Prince Charles befittingly reopened its doors on St George’s Day in 2007. In the years since, St George’s Hall has returned to its former glory as an unrivalled spot for world-class events, having hosted breath-taking spectacles from a live rooftop gig by Ringo Starr to the sleeping giants of Royal de Luxe and so much more.

In fact, the Hall hosts a great variety of free and paid public events and exhibitions all year round; from a range of fascinating, in-depth guided tours to mainstream music and comedy gigs. You may even be greeted by the cheers of wedding guests or the sight of corporate delegates on your visit, such is the multi-faceted magnitude of events that St George’s Hall entertains.

As for the aesthetics? The interior architecture is a reflection of the ostentatious display that Victorian Liverpool had, with a ceiling supported on massive red granite columns and figures portraying art, science, fortitude and justice. Look beyond the gold leaf and porticoes in the Great Hall; this is home to the greatest brick arches in the world, and houses a breath-taking Minton tiled floor of over 30,000 mosaic tiles, which has been revealed numerous times since the building’s reopening.

St George’s Hall is even a popular location for filming, having appeared in world class productions such as Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Peaky Blinders.

Beneath the spellbinding grandeur of the Hall lies the doldrums of the prison cells and law courts, where many a Victorian prisoner awaited their fate. This cavernous and gloomy area of the building has recently been brought to life through an immersive experience, The St George’s Hall Experience: The History Whisperer™. The History Whisperer – a little girl named Livie – leads visitors through the social history of Victorian Liverpool, while providing a unique perspective into the sights and sounds of prison life. Along the way, visitors can unleash fascinating historic facts and events from the walls at the touch of their fingertips. Tickets for #TheHistoryWhisperer and a whole host of other events can be booked online via the St George’s Hall website, or via the Visitor Entrance (based on St John’s Lane, opposite Courtyard Bar & Kitchen).
