Mount Pleasant

Mount Pleasant lies in the University/Knowledge quarter of the city and is home to the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King. The street has a variety of architecture styles from georgian terrace houses/shops to victorian redbrick, classical and modern . . . .

































































And at the end of the street is the stunning Victoria Building of the University of Liverpool. It was completed in 1892 and this building gave rise to the term 'Redbrick University' meaning a top class institution:







Coming soon . . a closer look at the Metropolitan Cathedral

Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King


Completed in 1967 the Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral is like no other cathedral i have ever been in. First to hit you is the striking design of the cathedral's exterior - which is often compared to a wigwam or tipi. Then when you walk inside your eyes are immediately drawn upwards to the lightwell. The inside is amazingly atmospheric and i have never been in a space and felt the same. I would definitely recommend this for anyone visiting Liverpool . . . .

The city centre has had a lot of investment but I'm wondering will there be any investment around Anfield, Stanley Park area? I've been before and it badly needs some investment.
