Princes Road Synagogue

About

The Old Hebrew Congregation's Grade I* listed building (1874) with spectacular interior. Probably Europe's finest example of the Moorish Revival or Saracenic style of synagogue architecture. Guided talks (1 hour) outline the architecture, the history of the building and of the local Jewish community and include a demonstration of the artefacts and their place in Religious traditions.

The Synagogue was designed by W and G Audsley of Liverpool. Built in 1874 of red sandstone and unpressed brick, the building impressively combines Gothic and Moorish architecture. The stepped gable surmounts a rose window flanked by octagonal turrets. The interior is rich in marble and gold and has a tunnel vaulted nave, a magnificent Byzantine style Ark of the Convenant and a columnated almemar.

On-street parking alongside synagogue.
